  • 8 slices soft bread I used Hawaiaan bread
  • 1 English cucumber; thinly sliced
  • 4 ounces. plain cream cheese; softened
  • 1 Tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice; fresh
  • 1/2 Tbsp. fresh dill; finely chopped
  • 1/2 Tbsp. fresh chives; finely chopped
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. onion powder
  • pinch salt and black pepper


  • With a hand mixer or a fork, mix together the cream cheese and mayonnaise until smooth. Stir in the lemon juice, dill, chives, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.
  • Spread herb cream cheese evenly on each slice of bread, 8 total.
  • Add 6-12 slices of cucumber over half of the bread slices, 4 total. Top with other half of the bread slice and gently press down on each sandwich.
  • Cut each sandwich into quarters and serve immediately. Cover with plastic wrap and store for up to 24 hours.
  • Optional: remove the crusts if desired. Cut each sandwich into halves or thirds. Add more fresh herbs on top of the cucumbers for additional flavor.
