Cucumber Sammies

I first learned this recipe while working at  The White Oak Inn. These lovely little sandwiches, aka "sammies", would be served for teas and special events, along with an assortment of other wonderful goodies, and I was always excited to help dispose of leftovers.

While I cannot claim that the following recipe is an exact copy of what I used to help make years ago, the most important aspects remain: simple, fresh, quick, and healthy, not to mention super yummy. Oh, and my kiddo loves them too!

Cucumber Sammies 

1 Medium cucumber
1/3 Block cream cheese (about 2.5 ounces)
2 Tbs Dill paste 
(Fresh is preferred if you can find it. Add to taste. Flavor will increase once combination has been chilled)
Sea Salt, to taste
Whole wheat bread

Whip cream cheese and salt together until light and fluffy
Wash, peel if desired, and finely dice cucumber
 Fold cucumber and dill into cream cheese until blended
Cover, directly on top of mixture to prevent drying, and chill for 30+ minutes
Spread onto whole wheat bread

Yes, it really is that simple! 

*Replace cream cheese with low fat cream cheese for an even healthier version
