Invented by Jennie Carter Benedict, a Louisville, Kentucky caterer, this refreshing cucumber-cream cheese spread is just as good today as it was over 100 years ago.
Mince cucumber, onion, and mint in a food processor; transfer to a fine-mesh sieve and press to remove excess water. Return cucumber mixture to food processor. Add cream cheese and purée; season spread with salt.
Serve benedictine spread on toasted baguette slices; top with parsley.
