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.
This was really a great recipe ~ because in the summer I would take cucumber sandwich`s to work But my sandwich would become SOGGY this is perfect ! Love the dill & garlic ~ it makes it all that ! Took me longer to make it because I don`t have a food processer ~ so I use my hand mixer & use my hand grater for my cucumbers ! I gald Ifound you recipe just in time for the summer & al my cook outs ~ POKER~
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 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 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!
Making sandwiches for a reception, I thought this needed some zip. I shredded & drained the cucumber, added a splash of Worcestershire, some white pepper, and finally scored the taste we like by adding about a tsp or more of Tabasco's Jalapeno sauce : it's not hot, its mildly piquante, and reacted w/ the cucumbers & cheese for a very interesting taste. Added alfalfa sprouts for sandwiches - I'd recommend they be kept refrigerated until just before serving. Left at room temp, this makes a great dip, though!
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.
this was the cuke filling i was looking for...i sheredded the cukes as well...with fresh cukes this is to die for....and easy too
Thanks, Shawna. Delicious and easy!
