Cucumber Sandwiches


Cucumber sandwich recipe illustration

White bread (thinly sliced)
Unsalted butter
Hot house cucumbers (sometimes called English cucumbers)
Salt and pepper

  • Butter two slices of bread generously and season with salt and pepper.
  • Peel the cucumber if you prefer not to eat the skin, then slice thinly. You can do this in long strips with a vegetable peeler if you don’t want to eat the seeds.
  • Arrange the cucumber in a think layer over the bottom slice of the buttered bread and sandwich on the top slice.
  • Cut off the crusts then slice the bread wither into triangles, or, my personal preference, into three long thin slices.
