Cucumber Sandwiches

 

Tea time?  No, ANYTIME!

These tasty treasures are traditionally served in tiny triangular bite sized portions, but I am so in love with the flavors, that I when I make a sandwich for myself,  prefer to just half it, so I can really sink my teeth in.  Granted, when I make them to bring to tennis, or a luncheon, I slice them up into the little triangles to make them an easier finger food.  But if it’s just for me, give me the full size please!!!!

 

Exact measurements are not given below, because, as you can guess, you can either make 1 sandwich or a dozen, depending on how many people you need to feed.

 

Cucumber Sandwiches

 

  • English hot house cucumber, or Small persian cucumbers, sliced
  • Cream cheese, softened, or the whipped cream cheese does well too
  • micro-greens
  • good dense, slightly sweet bread (I like Whole Grain Natural Bread Co. California Black Bread, or Orowheat Buttermilk white bread)
  • *** secret ingredient*** greek seasoning (as shown in picture below, available on the spice aisle of most grocery stores)
You assemble this, just as you would any other sandwich, in this order:
slice of bread
spread with cream cheese
sprinkle with greek seasoning, to taste
add a layer of cucumber slices
a layer of micro greens
top slice of bread
I know this is so simple, but sometimes, the simple things are the BEST.  This is one of those things… people forget how good these are!!!  Try them for yourself and see if you agree!

  1. Yum! These sound really good. I’ve never tried a cucumber sandwich but have always thought they sounded delish. I’ll bookmark these to try!

    • They are the tiny sprouts of different varieties of lettuce. I get them at Trader Joes or Whole Foods. If you don’t have one of those close to you, you could try alfalfa sprouts.
