These little open faced cucumber sandwiches are always a hit, and I never leave a party without getting asked for the recipe several times! Allow the mayonnaise mixture to sit overnight in the refrigerator if you have the time -- it will taste even better.

Hi all. I'm the submitter and just wanted to clarify a few things. First many people do not realize that when it calls for MAYO it means real Mayonnaise like Hellman's or Kraft's. NOT MIRACLE WHIP. Also when you mix it up it should sit overnight in the fridge. That part was omitted when they posted the recipe...not sure why. And last I used Zesty Italian mix which is much zippier than the regular. It is definitely saltier than some may like but if the cucumber is thick enough then it cuts the saltiness. I read where someone basically shaved the cucumber for some thin slices but we like biting into a chunk of cucumber that's sitting on a dollop of the dip. Like another reader we've had this stuff for breakfast on many occasions! It's THAT good! I've never had a left over when I take this to any function or event. Best of luck! Read More

I had a large holiday party and served these sandwiches. One small child ate three and the rest sat untouched. Although it is a simple recipe it is unremarkable. Read More

I like to mix in an 8oz block of cream cheese with the mayo and dressing mix to give it a little more glue to hold the cucumber onto the bread. Read More
