Cucumber-Lox Tea Sandwiches


I have recently introduced “Snack Night” into our dinner repertoire, much to the satisfaction of Ben. For me, the joy of snack night is that I can throw together something easy and get away with cooking very little. I normally serve 2-3 different items to make it a filling meal. Consider these Cucumber-Lox Tea Sandwiches, which require no cooking at all!


– 1 English cucumber, sliced
-1 block of cream cheese, softened
-2 tbsp mayonnaise
-1 package of Italian dressing mix (like Good Seasons)
-pumpernickel bread


  1. Mix together cream cheese, mayonnaise, and Italian dressing mix.
  2. Slice pumpernickel into small slices (enough room to fit two pieces of cucumber). Toast in oven or toaster.
  3. Spread cream cheese mixture onto each slice of pumpernickel. Top each with two pieces of cucumber. Sprinkle cucumber with dill. Top each piece with lox.
