DIRECTIONS

  • Peel and cut the cucumbers in half lengthwise.
  • Remove the seeds and sprinkle the cavities liberally with salt.
  • Place the cucumbers on a rack in a glass dish, cover, and let drain overnight.
  • The next day rinse the cucumbers to remove excess salt, and press between paper towels to remove any excess moisture.
  • Chop the cucumbers and put into a food processor.
  • Blend for 10 seconds.
  • Chop the cream cheese into cubes, and add to the cucumbers along with the chives and salad dressing powder, and blend until smooth.
  • Cut the crusts from the bread and use a cookie cutter to cut shapes out of each slice.
  • I use a heart-shaped cutter that is 2 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches.
  • You can usually get two sandwiches out of each slice of bread.
  • I freeze the scraps to use for bread crumbs, or I feed them to the birds.
  • Spread the cucumber filling on each slice and place into an airtight container separating layers or sandwiches with waxed paper.
  • Refrigerate for an hour or more.
  • Place on a serving platter and garnish each sandwich with a snippet of fresh parsley.
