Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 12


  • 8-12 slices of bread
  • 1-2 medium-sized cucumbers fresh
  • 2 cans coconut milk refrigerated at least 2 hours
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 2 tspn dill weed
  • 2 tblspn lemon juice
  • 1/2 tspn salt
  • pinch granulated garlic
  • Linen cloth


  1. You need to start by making your Coconut Milk Cream Cheese by placing the linen cloth over a bowl, pushing the cloth down to create a depression.
  2. Open the cans of coconut and pour-off the water, placing the cream in the depression of the cloth.
  3. Wrap the cream in the cloth and squeeze the water off. Be careful here, because you don't want to squeeze too much off--just enough so that the cream is more solid like cream cheese.
  4. Get rid of the water and put the cheese (we're going to start calling it cheese now) in the bowl, without the cloth.
  5. Set that aside and grate your onion.
  6. Add the onion to the cheese.
  7. Add the dill, lemon juice, garlic and salt.
  8. Stir until thoroughly mixed.
  9. Set aside.
  10. Cut the crusts off of the bread slices.
  11. Slice the bread into triangles ('cause we're fancy that way).
  12. Set aside.
  13. Peel the cucumber(s) and slice into 1/8 to 1/4-inch wide slices no longer than an inch or so.
  14. Using a butter knife, smear about a half-tablespoon of the cheese mixture on one side of each piece of bread.
  15. On half of the bread slices, place one layer of cucumber slices.
  16. Place a non-cucumbered slice of bread on top of each cucumbered slice of bread and lightly mush together.
  17. Place them on your fanciest plate and serve them at you next tea party!
