In this Cucumber and Cream Cheese Sandwich recipe, the refreshing cucumbers, together with an easy herbed cream cheese spread, makes a refreshing addition to any afternoon tea or summer picnic.
Place the thinly sliced cucumber onto kitchen paper and pat dry to remove extra moisture. This will help prevent the bread from becoming soggy too quickly.
Similarly, butter the bread thinly to the crust to create a barrier that helps keep moisture away from the bread.
If you’re in a rush, you can use herb and garlic cream cheese.
Cut the cucumber sandwiches into triangles, or fingers, or even into perfect circles using a cookie cutter. It’s up to you; do what pleases you.
Use only soft white sliced bread for this recipe and be sure to remove the crusts. Stick to tradition; there is no place for sourdough or thick granary bread here.
