Cucumbers are probably my favorite summer veggie. Ice cold, sliced, and dipped in some salad dressing - man that's a great snack on a hot day! I remember growing up at our house in Philadelphia, my parents' had a pretty awesome vegetable garden. I believe they had tomatoes, cucumbers, radishes (my dad's favorite), and bell peppers growing back there - I wish I had inherited their love for gardening! Though I really need to, at least with some pots on our back deck. Anyone have a successful veggie garden in pots? Inquiring minds would love to know. :)
These bagel sandwiches are perfect for summer picnics, BBQs, and parties. Actually, I think they would be great at bridal and baby showers. You probably could substitute the everything bagels for party rye or crescent rolls, but I honestly wouldn't. I think it was the perfect flavor pairing!
In a medium bowl, combine cucumber, cream cheese, green onions, and Worcestershire sauce. Cover and refrigerate an hour or more (if preparing this for a party, I would refrigerate overnight to make the flavors really come together). Serve spread on everything bagels, refrigerate leftovers.
