Here’s #3 on your Derby Menu! To Kentuckians, Benedictine is what pimento cheese is to the rest of the South- the sandwich spread of choice (even though I don’t really like the term sandwich spread. It makes me think of terms like “jello mold.” I much prefer “stuff to make a sandwich with.” But since that’s not proper, we’ll go with “sandwich spread” in this write up.) Benedictine is simply another term for cucumber sandwiches. Sometimes, you will find it with a hint of green food coloring or as a dip. But not here. Below is your traditional Benedictine sandwich recipe.
