Checkerboard Cucumber Cream Cheese and Chive Sandwiches

Recipe

Looking for a snack or bite-size lunch?  This recipe came from J.B. Stanley’s mystery novel called Stiffs and Swine.  It also seems good to serve as an hors d’oeuvre for a party.

Inn at Fox Hall’s Checkerboard Cucumber Cream Cheese and Chive Sandwiches

You will need:
-20 slices cucumber, peeled and sliced very thinly
-salt
-1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
-1/2 teaspoon dried chives (or fresh, if available)
-10 slices crustless rye bread (tea-sized)
-10 slices crustless white bread (tea-sized)

Sprinkle the cucumbers with salt and set them in a colander to drain for at least 1 hour.  Stir the cream cheese and chives in small bowl.  For each sandwich, spread 1 slice of rye bread with the cream cheese mixture.  Layer 1 slice of white bread with 2 cucumber slices.  Cover with the rye bread slice, cream cheese side down.  Cut in half to form two triangles.

Bite away!  Enjoy them with tea or cocktails.
