These are great for any type of party or gathering, and I never come home with leftovers. I've even eaten the "extra stuff" for breakfast the next day!

This is a fairly salty tasting appetizer, so if you're not up for all the salt, add an extra 1/2 Cup of mayo to the mixture. It's trial and error in my house.

How to Make Italian Cucumber Sandwiches

Step-by-Step

  1. 24 hours before, mix the mayo and dressing mix in a small bowl. Make sure it's mixed completely. Refrigerate until you're ready to use it.
  2. On the day you're going to be serving it, peel and slice the cucumber. Thickness is a personal preference. I like mine about the thickness in the picture, or even a little thicker.
  3. Put your mayo mixture into a zipper bag and snip a corner off (about the size of a nickel).
  4. Squirt a dollop of mayo mixture onto each slice of bread. I usually squirt about a tablespoon or so, but it's not rocket science. Just squirt some! Use the cucumber slice to "smush" it onto the bread so you don't have to spread it with a knife. This saves a LOT of time.
  5. The number of cucumbers you'll need depends upon how big they are (too big and you'll lose flavor) and how thick you like them. I always like to buy two medium sized ones, just to make sure I have enough. Leftover ingredients are great for breakfast! No kidding!
