These cucumber sandwiches are the perfect appetizer for a party!
They are so good I sometimes eat them for lunch or a snack. They are light, but also filling.
I usually use a loaf of pumpernickel cocktail bread but my grocery store was out of it. I was really craving this so I had to improvise.
I bought a regular loaf of pumpernickel bread, cut off the crust (in a rectangular shape), then cut it into two squares. It worked out great!
With only four ingredients in this recipe, it is very easy to make. Even having to cut up the bread it only took me 15 minutes. I love a recipe that is tasty AND easy!
I recently updated the recipe on the WW app to include the points for blue, green and purple. I always recommend double-checking the points of a recipe based on the ingredients that you are using.
For my cucumber sandwiches I used Rubschlager pumpernickel cocktail bread. 20 slices was 14 points.
I also used Philadelphia reduced fat garden vegetable cream cheese. I used 1/2 tablespoon for each piece which was 10 tablespoons total. It was also 14 points for the cream cheese.
The cucumber and dill were both zero points.
Two cucumber sandwiches is 3 points for blue, green and purple.
Yield: 20 (Two cucumber sandwiches = 3 points for blue, green and purple)

- 10 tablespoons garden vegetable reduced fat cream cheese
- 1 cucumber, sliced

Spread 1/2 tablespoon of cream cheese on each piece of bread.
