What is a cucumber sandwich?

An absolutely refreshing sandwich which has a delicious sandwich spread with the crunch of cucumber and creaminess of cream cheese alike is cucumber sandwich. It is an easy sandwich recipe and calls for a few ingredients. Cucumber sandwich is beyond the sandwich bread with cucumber salad. It has a nice sandwich spread, which makes it filling. As a result, the recipe can be an easy dinner recipe or an easy lunch recipe.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Cucumber Sandwich Recipe:

Sandwich bread: I have used white sandwich bread for better pictures so that the green pops out. If you see the process pictures, brown bread has been used. Basically, you can work with any sandwich bread of your choice.

Cream Cheese Substitute: I am a big fan of cream cheese recipes. I love to make dips, spreads, and icings with it. But it is expensive and perishable, therefore unless I am sure of using it in toto I don’t buy the pack from the market. Instead, I make a substitute for cream cheese at home which works very well. In this recipe also the same has been done.

English Cucumbers: My sabjiwala calls it Chinese cucumber. These are the greener cucumbers, different from the desi ones, which are used with the peel. These work best for this sandwich recipe.

Cheese: If you are a fan of cheese sandwich recipes we have some good news for you.  Cucumber sandwich is a cheese sandwich too. Cheese complements the cucumber sandwiches very well.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
