Once in a while, we are in the mood for a little lightly buttered cucumber sandwich. We have attended a few high teas and afternoon teas and light and refreshing cucumber sandwiches always make its way to the tea tray.
Thin crustless bread is essential in traditional cucumber sandwiches, so we purchased Pepperidge farm thin white bread.
- 1 T of unsalted butter
- 1 tsp sea salt
- small cucumber
- two slices of thin white bread
Using a mandolin, slice paper-thin slices of cucumber and seasoned it with a little sea salt. Then with room temperature soft butter, spread on the thin slices of white bread. Layer cucumbers on the open-faced bread and cut the crusts off the bread.
