Cucumber & Dill Canapes

This is one of my favorite spring & summer time appetizers.  It's light & refreshing, perfect when the weather is heating up. It's easy to make & always a crowd pleaser!
1-2 Cucumbers
1 French Baguette
1- 8 oz brick of Cream Cheese, softened
2 tbsp Mayonnaise
1- 0.7 oz envelope dried Italian Salad Dressing Mix
Minced Fresh or dried Dill, for garnish

Combine the softened cream cheese, mayonnaise, dried Italian Seasoning in a medium bowl.  
This is the Italian Seasoning that I use, you can find it in any grocery store in the salad dressing isle.  
Slice the cucumber about 1/4-1/2" thick.  You can leave the cucumbers unpeeled or peel them if you'd like, but I like to peel strips leaving parts of the peel on.
 I use a French baguette but you could really use any kind of bread that you'd like!
 Slice the baguette into 1/2-3/4" slices.
 To assemble the canapes, spread the cream cheese mixture on a slice of bread.  Place a slice of cucumber on the spread & top with dill.  Don't leave off the Dill- it is a must!!  Serve immediately.
   This recipe serves 8-10.
