Your choice good bread, crusts trimmed
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

Squeeze of lemon juice
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.
