Instructions

  1. Insert the slicing disc into the work bowl of the food processor. Slice the cucumber (you will have half-moon shapes).
  2. Lay the slices of bread on a clean work surface. Spread 1 teaspoon of cream cheese on one side of each piece of bread. Top half of the slices with 3 cucumber slices and a piece of smoked salmon each. Top with another piece of bread, cream cheese side down.
  3. Halve the sandwiches on the diagonal and serve immediately.

*If you cannot find cocktail bread, extra-thin sliced bread, such as Pepperidge Farm brand, is a good substitute. Just cut each slice in quarters to make them cocktail size.
