- 2 loaves mini French bread (baguettes would work well, too)
- 1 English cucumber
- 8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
- Seasoned rice vinegar (any vinegar would probably be fine)
- Favorite herbs - I used dried dill and thyme
Mix together herbs (to taste) and cream cheese. If needed, add a little milk or cream to make it lighter. However, if the cream cheese is at room temperature, it should mix up just fine. I like the taste of the herbs to come through so I started with a half teaspoon of each and added a "pinch" until I got the flavor I wanted. You may want to add a pinch of salt.
Slice bread to desired thickness. I think mine was about 1/8th of an inch but I'd slice them a little thicker if they were to be more filling, as for a tea party. Spread cream cheese mixture on the bread and then top with two cucumbers.
Serve on your prettiest plate or serving platter.
