Oh man, this makes the best cucumber sandwhich I have ever tasted. I've been wanting to find a good recipe since I had a cucumber sandwhich from this pastry shop. This recipe beats the other one hands down. I love the creaminess of the filling. The only thing I changed was that I shredded my cucumbers. I would highly recommend this recipe to anyone! From now on, I will make sure to have all these recipes on hand for when I get a craving for a cucumber sandwhich. Thanks for this awesome recipe!

What a fresh tasting vegetable sandwich filling. Really liked the dill/garlic kick. Made this for lunch but I bet it would go over really well in finger sanwiches at a luncheon or shower. Thanks for posting! You might want to change your serving size to 6 or 8 though. Zaar has the saturated fat at 279%!! The computer thinks a serving equals one cup.

Very fast and tasty. I salted the chopped cucumber and let it drain for a while before adding it to the cream cheese, so it would stay crunchy. I'm really enjoying this on whole wheat bread...I'm going to add some smoked salmon to the sandwich tomorrow, which should be delicious. Thanks!

I think I'll probably be making this again! Was great for a light dinner on a hot day yesterday, and super quick to throw together. I did double the cucumber and chopped it into bigger pieces, but it ended up perfect for me. I eyeballed the spices because I couldn't find my measuring spoons, so I may have used a bit more then called for, but these sandwiches were delightful! Make sure you use a good buttery tasting bread!

I loved this spread! I thought, after my first few bites, the spread needed more dill and salt so I added more and that really brought out the flavor! The spread is definitely better once it is allowed to chill in the 'fridge for a bit. I served this between two slices of whole grain bread. So yummy and great on a hot Texas day! Thank you for posting.

I had a tea party for my daughters 6th birthday and made these for the mothers in attendence- after all what is a tea party without cucumber sandwiches! The response was an overwhelming MMMM! They all wanted the recipe. I served the filling on Pepridge Farms super thin sliced bread and garnished it with leftover dill. It looked almost as good as it tasted- cut into little triangles on a silver platter. Very delicate and flavorfull at the same time. I love this recipe- thank you for sharing it.

I have tried this recipe a few times and each time I change it slightly because for me it is a great base but needed something to suit my palette . I am a Texas girl who loves her spices but the garlic just wasn't doing it for me. So I changed that to McCormick's Lemon Zest Salt, to brighten it up a touch but I was still missing something and today I think I got it. I added a teaspoon of Dijon mustard to up the flavor a smidgen and balance out the richness of the cream cheese. For me it is perfect. This is a great recipe to put your own spin on and make your own.

The flavor was great, however dicing the cucumber made it difficult to remove the liquid. This caused the filling to become watered down on the second day in the fridge. Next time I'll shred the cucumbers to prevent that from happening. Served with toasted pita chips.
