Dilly Shrimp and Cucumber Sandwiches


"Land O Lakes Taste of Summer" had a lot of good-looking recipes; but I had homemade  rye hamburger buns on hand, and cucumbers in the garden, so we had to try this sandwich recipe.  I didn’t’ have lettuce, but I did have garden spinach, we think that’s a worthy tradeoff.  I also sprinkled the salad with a squeeze of lemon juice.  We thought this sandwich combination would have also been good with chopped chicken for folks who aren’t seafood lovers or who want a less expensive meal.   Finish off the plate with home-grown tomatoes…bliss.
