About this recipe: An easy party food, which can be thrown together quickly. Baguette slices are topped with a seasoned cream cheese, cucumber and dill.
First,definitely use toasted slices of cocktail bread-rye or pumpernickel.2nd, don't use mayo,it just doesn't go well with the cream cheese.I suggest sour cream. 3rd, add the dry dressing mix a little at a time, and taste...until it's to your liking. Using a whole packet is way too much! Half would be better. Dry or fresh dill, either works well. I'll make this again with the above changes. The recipe, as is, is just much too strong and salty and greasy, and the bread does nothing for it. - 22 May 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
THANK YOU!!! This recipe was a huge hit at my family reunion, and was SO easy! I used plain Melba Rounds, and splurged on a seedless English Cucumber. It sliced very thinly, which is key in this recipe. I used fresh dill on top; tiny sprigs arranged to look like seagrass. A faint brushing of paprika added the final color. My relatives thought I had been to culinary school! Chilled on a crisp white platter, these make a great addition to any party! - 05 Aug 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Amazes me that this recipe got even one bad review. It's awesome! I used triscuits. Also took a reviewer's advice and used seedless cucumber. Used Good Season's italian dressing mix - the normal kind. Used about 1/2 of it - kept tasting until I was satisfied. Sliced the cucumber very thin. Sprinkled fresh dill on top, didn't use any dried. Used the amount of mayo recommended in the recipe, otherwise I think the mixture would have been way too thick. Mixed the spread the night before - I recommend this, the flavors were even better the next day. My guests loved these and so did I! They will be a party standard from now on. - 16 Mar 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
