I am not, try as I might, a big fan of cucumbers. But somewhere I had a spread for crackers or bread that was cucumbers and cream cheese and maybe other stuff. What can I do in that vein with cucumbers that I might like better? I don't know what was in that spread but it was good!

My college roomie would make thin, tea-style cucumber sammies. Mix cream cheese with Worcestershire sauce to taste. Spread a layer on thinly sliced bread and line with sliced, thinly peeled cucumbers.

What about tzatziki? It's basically Greek yogurt, shredded cucumber and dill, eaten as a dip with pita or crusty bread. I find the cucumber is not such an overpowering flavor when combined with the dill.

This also has lemon juice and crushed garlic in it. The dill is optional, you can omit it (I do) or you can replace it with mint.<br><br>
I could eat this as soup <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yummy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yummy"> It is completely addictive.

I love, love, love thinly sliced (or minced) cucumbers on bagels with cream cheese. I've seen cucumber spreads that would certainly simplify things too, but try it on hot toasted bagels.

My gran used to make me cucumber/peanut butter sandwiches which I loved as a child. . .I know it sounds weird, but it was yummy. I also like cucumber with cream cheese and arugula or watercress on thinly sliced rye bread. Heck, I just love cucumber on pretty much any sandwich it gives such a nice crunch on cheese sandwiches, turkey sandwiches, ham sandwiches, veggie sandwiches, etc. . .

This is not a sandwich, BUT, my kids love to peel and core a small cucumber. Then they fill it with salad dressing and eat it as a portable snack. OK-it sounds gross as I write it, but works for them! I thinly slice cukes to add to my tomato sandwiches, which are my fav. sandwich of all time.
