recipe the other day on Tasty Kitchen and thought I'd give it a try to use up the cucumber in my fridge. I made one slight modification, which was to use those Grisol toasted baguette rounds rather than fresh bread because I wanted some crunch. Oh, and I halved the recipe here because the whole recipe makes like a million. I'm still eating the (delicious!) leftovers for lunch two days later. If you like dill, you'll like this recipe. Here it is:
Cucumber Dill Canapés
From Tasty Kitchen
Half of an 8-oz package cream cheese, softened
1-2 tbsp dry Italian style salad dressing mix
1 teaspoon dried dill weed
¼ cup mayonnaise
1 box baguette rounds or melba toast rounds
1 whole cucumber, sliced
1. In a bowl, mix together the cream cheese, dressing mix, dill weed, and mayonnaise.
2. Spread a thin layer of the mixture on each slice of bread and top with a slice of the cucumber. Cucumber can be cut into thin strips instead of slices when it’s for something fancy with a carrot peeler.
3. Sprinkle with some additional dill and serve.
Pairs nicely with fingers and a cocktail napkin.
