The best simple cucumber sandwiches are made with rye bread, herbed cream cheese, and fresh from the garden cucumbers with plenty of salt.
Summer is slipping by fast and the world seems to be ready for apple and pumpkin recipes already. I’m sitting over here in the corner yelling, “But my garden is still producing like crazy! What about that zucchini? That tomato? That cucumber recipe! Waaaait!” So in a personal effort to prolong summer just a bit I’m going to go ahead and post some awesome recipes that feature summer’s bounty. Sure I love me some apple and pumpkin, but I’m just not there yet! Can’t we wait just a few more weeks? In my mind you can’t get more summery than a delicious cucumber sandwich, and that’s just what I have to share today.
A cucumber sandwich is just what a summer lunch should be – light, tangy, fresh, and airy. I look forward to my first cucumbers because I just can’t wait to make this. This also makes a great appetizer or finger food for a party (baby show must have in my mind!), just use those tiny pieces of rye bread instead of a standard loaf and you’ll have yourself an adorable little sandwich (great for finger foods at a party or baby shower).
The recipe is super simple, totally adaptable to your tastes, and is just begging for you to try it today. Enjoy!
