These open-faced sandwiches are perfect for showers, ladies' teas or brunches. My mom used to make these for me as a little girl for our "tea parties". I use the Neufchatel Cheese because its a lighter taste and less fat than cream cheese. They are also good topped with a single, chilled cocktail shrimp. If you can't find cocktail bread, then a regular slice will do - just cut it in half.
- 1 loaf pumpernickel cocktail bread
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1 (2/3 ounce) package Italian salad dressing mix
- 1 hothouse cucumber, Sliced Thin
- dried dill
