Olive-Cucumber Finger Sandwiches

Rated as 4.55 out of 5 Stars

"Along with a refreshing beverage, I served these attractive hors d'oeuvres to guests at my Garden Party. The crisp cucumbers on these easy-to-fix finger sandwiches get their zip from being marinated for a short time. --Sara Laker Loda, Illinois"

I made these for a baby shower but chopped and blended all the ingredients together to make a spread and put onto tea sandwiches. Very delicious!

I didn't really like these. I'm not quite sure what it was, most likely the vinegar. Also, having soft bread is not a good mix with the cream cheese and crunchy cucumber.
