10-12 sandwiches

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 12 cup mayonnaise
  • 12 cup crushed pineapple, drained and patted dry
  • 12 cup finely minced green olives
  • 12 cup finely chopped cucumber
  • 12 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1 loaf soft white bread, crusts removed (I used Pepperidge Farm)
  • 1 loaf soft whole wheat bread, crusts removed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves, for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons cooked bacon, pieces for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons poppy seeds, for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans, for garnish


  1. In a medium bowl, mix together cream cheese and mayonnaise. Split into 4 approximately 4 oz. portions and put into separate bowls.
  2. Combine pineapple and 4 oz. cream cheese mixture and set aside. Combine green olives and 4 oz. cream cheese and set aside. Combine cucumbers and 4 oz. cream cheese mixture and set aside (I sprinkled chopped cucumber with salt and drained it over a colander for 30 minutes and patted it with a paper towel before adding it to cream cheese). Combine pecans and 4 oz. of cream cheese mixture and set aside.
  3. To assemble sandwiches, spread fillings on top of white bread slices. Cut each sandwich into triangles, squares or circles. Arrange on a large platter by filling. Garnish with parsley, bacon pieces, poppy seeds, or pecans.
