Notes about this recipe

  • babyfork on June 14, 2020

    I followed the recipe and used 6 oz of cream cheese. I wish they had used cup or ounce measurements for the cucumber and onion though. I grated a Vidalia onion very fine and used the juice as instructed, but I think my overall mixture came out a bit too wet. It was very tasty though. I'd try it again and adjust to make it less runny. The green food coloring is authentic I guess, but not necessary. I was just making this for myself so I didn't bother cutting off the crusts. I had some watercress so added that to the sandwich. Made a Mint Julep slush and watched the Kentucky Derby pandemic replay I had DVRed...LOL.
