Benedictine is a traditional crustless cream cheese cucumber sandwich served on Derby Day. They actually use green food coloring, but we used Alliyum to give this crustless white bread wonder serious pizzaz.

1/2 cucumber, peeled, seeded, grated, drained for about 1/2 hour
8 oz. cream cheese, soft
1 Tbsp. mayonnaise
8 slices white bread, crusts removed
3 red leaf lettuce leaves
1.5 tsp Alliyum or to taste

Peel and grate the cucumber into a strainer. In the bowl, combine the cream cheese, mayonnaise, and Alliyum. Spread about 1/4" of goop onto each slice, spreading just almost to the edges of the bread. Top with lettuce. Sandwichify. Cut diagonally into four triangles.
