Holiday Cucumber Sandwich


Yet another variation on the Cucumber Sandwich... this one, a Christmas Tree.  The idea for this sandwich came from Tea Time Magazine, but this is my adaptation.  I spread a French Style Cream Cheese as base on the bread.  Then, using a mandolin, cut thin slices of cucumber (3 for each tree), and then cut them in half.  Place the cucumber slices on a paper towel to absorb some of the moisture of the cucumber.  Place the slices, in an alternating pattern on the bread.  Top with a petite star, cut from cheddar cheese.  Liberally sprinkle with dill weed.  Happy Holidays!
