Add a healthy dose of cool, light, garden-fresh flavor to your appetizer offerings with these low-fat herbed cucumber, cream cheese and shaved ham bites.
cup garlic-and-herb spreadable cheese (from 6.5-ounce container)
slices pumpernickel cocktail bread
pound shaved or very thinly sliced deli baked ham
seedless cucumber, thinly sliced
Fresh dill weed, if desired
Spread about 1 1/2 teaspoons cheese on each bread slice. Top with ham, folded to fit, and 2 cucumber slices.
Garnish with tiny sprigs of dill weed.
Garlic-and-herb spreadable cheese adds fantastic flavor to these bite-size sandwiches, but regular cream cheese spread will also work just fine.
You can make these sandwiches a day ahead, then place them in a single layer in a totable container. Keep them in your fridge until you're ready to go.
The appeal of seedless cucumbers is they don't need any peeling. Plus, the green skin adds a nice dash of color.
