"This is a good, simple recipe. I used a small loaf of thinly sliced whole wheat bread because we didn't have any rye bread on hand. We all enjoyed these light, summery snacks."

"Very good and easy to make. I didn't have dill sprigs or chive blossoms available, so I sprinkled a little dill weed AND paprika on top. Tasty and nice appearance."

"I didnt have Italian dressing mix, so I used Kraft Italian red pepper dressing in place. Everyone loved the sandwiches, but also thought it would make a good dip for chips or pretzels."

"I made these for our school art fair reception using the Outback pumpernickle bread instead of rye, and they were devoured by everyone. i was surprised that the teenagers loved these so much. A little extra time to make, but so worth it. Make the spread ahead to give time for flavors to meld."
