For the wow factor, add some fresh, finely chopped mint to the soft cheese...

Stretch it further and reduce your calories/carbs -
Take a rolling pin and roll out each slice of bread till they are at least half the size.

Then make your sandwiches - much finer dining, and less cals/carbs too!

Slice the cucumber and salt it, leave it an hour and drain the water from it, that way you don't get soggy sandwiches.
