80---Inside Out Cucumber Sandwiches

Because it's SHOWER season.  Bridal, baby, etc. 

More veggies are always better than less. Less is not more.  More is more.  Forever and always and research will never prove me wrong.

Inside Out Cucumber Sandwiches
Makes ~12 sandwiches

1 large cucumber
2 Tbsp light vegetable cream cheese (try mine)
12 rice crackers
Celery salt

Peel cucumber leaving strips of peel on cucumber (yes, for decor).  Slice cucumber into 1/2" slices.  Place slices onto a plate and sprinkle each side lightly with salt.  Place slices in refrigerator for 30 minutes (some of the water will seep out of slices).  Rinse each slice with water, then place onto a paper towel and press to remove excess water.

Spread 1/2 tsp cream cheese onto each side of a rice cracker.  Sandwich cream cheese spread cracker between two slices of cucumber.  Sprinkle the top of each sandwich lightly with celery salt.

Serve immediately.

  1. Several months ago Dorie Greenspan posted a recipe that was naturally gluten-free. One of the commenters stated that the best gluten-free recipes are those that are naturally gluten-free.

    I agree. In addition I think that no matter what one might be restricting in their diet, the best recipes are those that are naturally void of whatever foodstuff. I followed a vegan diet for a while and the best vegan recipes were those that were naturally vegan.
