1/4 English style cucumber
4 ounces cream cheese
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
2 scallions minced
salt to taste
softened unsalted butter
1/2 to 3/4 loaf of good quality or homemade bread
Peel and thinly slice the cumber. Blend cream cheese, lemon juice, minced scallions, and salt. Spread the bread slices with a thin layer of softened butter followed by a layer of the cream cheese spread.
Trim off the bread crusts. Cut the trimmed bread slices into rounds using a cookie or biscuit cutter. Top each round with a cucumber slice.
