  1. Place the softened cream cheese in a medium-sized bowl. Place the vegetables, parsley, and, if desired, the horseradish or mustard in a small bowl, and stir to mix well. Stir the vegetable mixture into the softened cream cheese, cover, and chill for several hours to allow the flavors to blend.
  2. Spread 1/4 cup of the filling over each of 8 slices of bread. Top each slice with 1 of the remaining slices, making 8 sandwiches. Trim the crusts from the bread, and cut each sandwich into 4 fingers. Arrange the sandwiches on a platter and serve immediately, or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 3 hours before serving.
