CUCUMBER WATERCRESS SANDWICHES

Ingredients and instructions

English cucumbers, scored with a fork (optional) and cut into very thin slices. Lay on paper towels for a bit to remove some moisture.

Your choice good bread, crusts trimmed

Filling

Mix together:

8 oz. regular cream cheese, softened

2 tablespoons wild onion, minced or chives, minced

1 nice sprig dead nettle, minced, leaves and flowers only

Palmful fresh dill leaves, minced

Salt to taste

Garlic powder to taste - start with 1/8 teaspoon

Shake of ground cayenne pepper

Squeeze of lemon juice

Even easier

Need quick and dang good?

Mix 8 oz. softened cream cheese with 1 pouch Ranch dressing mix, add a squeeze of lemon if you have it and you’re done!

Now make your little sandwiches:

So versatile as far as the bread is concerned. Cut the trimmed bread into shapes with cookie cutters, or simply spread the filling on trimmed bread, top with cucumbers and another slice of trimmed bread, then cut with serrated knife into squares, triangles, etc.

Or you can go “topless” - spread filling on and top with cucumber and a garnish. Filling can be made a couple days ahead.
