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)
- Mix together cream cheese, mayonnaise, and Italian dressing mix.
- Slice pumpernickel into small slices (enough room to fit two pieces of cucumber). Toast in oven or toaster.
- 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.
