  3. Remove cucumber slices from water; drain well on paper towels.
  4. Combine cream cheese and mayonnaise in a small bowl, beating with an electric mixer at low speed until smooth and creamy. Add grated cucumber, onion, and chopped fresh dill; mix well.
  5. Spread 1 teaspoon cream cheese mixture evenly over buttered side of each bread round. Top each round with slice of reserved cucumber and a sprig of fresh dill. Cover sandwiches with a damp cloth and refrigerate until ready to serve.
