    Redneck Epicurean's Note:

    This cucumber finger sandwich filling was created by Jenny Benedict, a popular caterer in Louisville, KY way back when. Now, it is a Kentucky favorite and dang near a recipe you MUST have on the table for a Derby party. This is pretty for St. Patty's Day and is so much better than a plain ole cucumber slice on a piece of bread. Cook time is chill time.

      My mother-in-law is from Louisville and clipped this recipe from the newspaper. Hers is actually called Louisville Benedictine, but it is identical to this. Good stuff!

      I found this recipe while searching ideas for a Kentucky Derby party. Made this today, very tasty. I will be using it as a filling for tea sandwiches. One thing, it did not state if you should drain the cucumbers? I did because there was a lot of liquid. Seem to turn out well. Does anyone know for sure?

      I too remember this as Benedictine. My G-mother spread it on dark marble rye, corner cuts standing on the crust edge with pickles and olives, both black & green in the center fresh broccoli and carrot sticks trimmed the plates edge. My G-mother had style. Oh! yeah, rose cut radishes for color
