SUYL- Favorite Appetizer

Today I'm going to participate in Kelly's Korner's Show Us Your Life Series and the theme is favorite appetizers. I really love making Buffalo Chicken Dip, but I'm sure many people will use that tasty treat for the series. So- to be original we will do Cucumber Toasties. They are so good- and a hit every time we have them. They're refreshing- and just so good!

Here's a pic when we served them at Quinlin's birthday party:

Creamy Dill Cucumber Toasties

courtesy of

• 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

• 1 (.7 ounce) package dry Italian-style salad dressing mix

• 1/2 cup mayonnaise

• 1 French baguette, cut into 1/2 inch thick circles

• 1 cucumber, sliced

• 2 teaspoons dried dill weed


1. In a medium bowl, mix together cream cheese, dressing mix and mayonnaise.

2. Spread a thin layer of the cream cheese mixture on a slice of bread, and top with a slice of cucumber. Sprinkle with dill. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

I tend to start with a half of the Italian dry seasoning mix and add more to taste. Sometimes it can taste too salty if I use the whole thing.

more images from all recipes of the treat... so good. It makes me want to make them now. Enjoy!


  1. I love those!!! Buffalo chicken dip is legalized crack, we had that at our block party on Monday and I had to make myself stop eating it. So yummy! Have a great weekend!

  2. Growing up, my mom would make cucumber sandwiches that were VERY similar to that. She used a rye deli bread instead of French bread, and spread mayo the bread instead of the mayo/cream cheese. I loved those, and this recipe looks great, too!
