Cucumber Sandwich!

by - June 11, 2012

I had never tried a cucumber sandwich until last year. With all the wedding and baby showers I've attended in the past 8 years, and being a southern girl, it's amazing I was able to dodge them for so long. Essentially, I have an irrational fear of what I call "old lady foods".

Allow me to expound. Fruit salad, tuna salad, potato salad, coleslaw, chicken salad, pimento cheese, jello with things in it, frozen jello-fruity-pink salads, pasta salad, sandwich pinwheels, deli meats, pickles, AND cucumber sandwiches all make me uneasy.

However, during a play date last summer, my friend Erin made a very simple cucumber sandwich that I loved and went home and made my own - over and over and over again.

Here are the ingredients to serve yourself up a simple snack that even I can enjoy.

  • 1 cucumber sliced thinly (or thickly if that's your preference) 
  • 3 slices of artisan bread halved 
  • 1 ounce cream cheese 
  • several sprigs of fresh dill 
  • garlic salt 
Warm the cream cheese just enough so it will spread easily, mix in the fresh dill and season with garlic salt. A shake or two should do the trick. Spread the cream cheese on BOTH pieces of bread and then sandwich in those cucumber slices. Enjoy!
