Cucumber sandwiches

My hubby put together these tasty appetizers for a family gathering last night.  They were introduced to us a couple weeks ago by our neighbors.  After a hot day at the lake, our neighbor brought these out as a refreshing treat before lunch.  We couldn't leave them alone.  So simple, crisp, and light for a summer's day!!

Ingredients:
cucumbers
seasoned cream cheese (we used Philadelphia Spinach and Artichoke)
turkey

Peel and slice cucumbers into slices.  Top with a tsp. of cream cheese and piece of turkey.  Enjoy!!

    1. Thanks for visiting my blog. And congrats on your first linky party. They are so much fun!! I host one on Thursdays. Come visit any time. The turkey in this recipe is just turkey breast. I like it best with the thin sliced from the deli. This was simply cut off of a turkey breast.

      I have linked up this recipe and another one of my favorites to your blog. I'm also following you on Facebook. Please follow me back.

      Thanks,
