Cucumber Sandwich

  • Author: Melissa Griffiths - Bless this Mess
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 4 open-faced sandwiches 1x


The best Cucumber Sandwich is made with rye bread, herbed cream cheese, and fresh cucumbers with some of salt. But of course, you can customize this lunch recipe to best suit your taste buds!


  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 green onion, green part only chopped
  • dash of garlic and onion powder, and salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 slices of rye bread
  • 1 cucumber sliced


  1. Add the cream cheese, green onion, and seasons to a small bowl and combine well with a fork.
  2. Adjust seasoning to taste. Toast (if you like) the rye bread.
  3. Spread 1/4 of the cream cheese mixture (or less if you like...) on the toasted bread and top with sliced cucumbers.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!


  • You can use reduced-fat cream cheese if you like here, it tastes just as creamy.
  • I love rye bread because it has great texture and adds a lot of flavor. Good options for bread include Jewish Rye, marbled Rye, and pumpernickel. Toasted or untoasted, you choose.
  • If you aren't up for making your own herbed cream cheese, the chive and onion cream cheese spread from the store is great on this.
  • That being said, you can use whatever herbs you love and have on hand too. It's great with fresh dill and/or parsley chopped up and stirred into the cream cheese mixture as well.
