CUCUMBER SANDWICHES


These sandwiches are always a hit at a party or potluck with no leftovers to take home. My mom gave me this recipe. They are super easy and perfect for spring/summer!

INGREDIENTS:
1-2 Loaves of bread
1 small jar of real mayo (I've used light before and it still seems great)
1/2 packet of Ranch (I used the original dip mix)
2 slices of onion chopped and diced
1-2 English cucumbers
Lemon Pepper

DIRECTIONS:
Mix the mayonnaise, 1/2 packet of ranch, and 2 slices of onion (chopped and diced very small) together and refrigerate over night.

Cut the bread into little circles:
I used the big side of a jigger to make the circles that I bought specifically for this, any round cookie cutter or small biscuit cutter would work.

Peel and thinly slice the cucumbers
(You can make the cucumbers fancy by leaving some green on the sides)

Cover the bread with the dip mix.

Place the cucumbers on top of the bread.

Sprinkle with Lemon Pepper and Serve.

Helpful Hint:I always cut the cucumbers, bread, and make the dip the night before and put them together no more than 2 hours prior to serving. 

Don't forget to keep sandwiches refrigerated if making them before the party.

I hope you enjoy these as much as we do!!!
