Crunchy Cheesy Open Face Cucumber Sandwiches

"A delicious cream cheese blend with dry Italian salad dressing, green onion and mayo, spread on pumpernickel bread and topped with a cucumber slice, sprinkled with dill weed and paprika. I got this recipe from a friend after she brought it to a luncheon. Make sure to make plenty, it's very delicious and refreshing."

  1. This was very nice. I had it on 12 grain bread for lunch. I can see how this would make a wonderful appetizer!!! Next time however, I'll double up on the cucumbers, and add another slice of bread. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for Spring PAC 2009.


I'm a stay at home wife now, and I am loving it. I had a great garden and spent the summer taking care of it. When the produce was ripe I canned, froze, jellied and jammed to my heart's content. My freezer and pantry are full of home made items. I am set for winter, or a nuclear disaster, which ever comes first.... ok, I guess that's not really funny, considering... I have chickens, and a dog, a great husband, three children 4 grand children. I love making everything from scratch, like sourdough bread and sweet potato pie. I have many interests, current events, history, mysteries, nature, music and the homesteading lifestyle. For fun, I belong to the Red hat society and so am always having a great time with my lady friends there. My husband and I love the Renaissance festivals and attend them regularly when we can. Yes, we dress up and talk with a funny accent....we love it, it is like going through a time machine back into the 1500 or 1600, depending on which renaissance the festival is honoring. (I bet you thought there was only one renaissance, didn't you?) So, that's me in a nutshell...
