1/2 cup finely chopped seeded cucumber

1/4 teaspoon salt
1 garlic clove, minced
8 (1 1/2-ounce) slices whole-grain bread
8 romaine lettuce leaves

- Add the cheeses, onion, salt, and garlic; stir with a fork until well blended.
- Spread about 1/2 cup cheese mixture over 4 bread slices; top each serving with 2 lettuce leaves and 1 bread slice.
