Stir in light mayonnaise gently, being careful not to overmix. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight to meld flavors.

Spread about ⅓ cup of cheese salad (about ½” thick) on a slice of bread, leaving a border. Top with a second slice of bread and press together gently. Repeat with remaining cheese salad and bread.

Trim crusts from sandwiches and then slice each sandwich into 3 equal-sized rectangles. If necessary, cover with dampened paper towels to prevent drying out.
