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
-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.
