These dainty little sandwiches are always a hit. They are so simple and very tasty. We use these a lot for showers and ladies luncheons. They just scream southern.

Cucumber Sandwiches

1 loaf bread
2-3 cucumbers
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
½ cup mayonnaise
2-3 tablespoons (or to taste) Mrs. Dash garlic and herb seasoning blend, plus additional for sprinkling

What you need-
This is how we make the sandwiches and catch up on all the latest gossip. Get your girlfriends together, gather around the table and start you an assembly line. Have someone cut the bread rounds out using a small round cookie cutter. Have someone else get the cucumbers ready by scoring the unpeeled cucumber using a fork. Then slice the cucumbers thin. That makes the cucumbers so pretty. Drain cucumber slices on paper towels; you don’t want a soggy cucumber sandwich. You combine the cream cheese, mayonnaise and Mrs. Dash in a small bowl. Spread cream cheese mixture on each bread round and let your girlfriend add the sliced cucumbers. Pass it down to be seasoned and garnished with Mrs. Dash. Put these pretty little sandwiches on a silver tray and garnish with fresh flowers or parsley. Make sure to make plenty of these sandwiches because the girls think of these sandwiches as being healthy and will eat a bunch of them.
