Cucumber Sandwiches and Summer Time Eating are just around the corner!

There is alot to be said about summer eating. The brightness of the flavors and the abundance of fresh vegetables from the garden is a complete 180 from the heaviness of Winter foods. I find it an exciting time to be in the kitchen.

Nothing is more satisfying them venturing out to the garden and plucking something for lunch. Regardless of what people say, a cucumber sandwich is not just reserved for a fancy tea. Although I do make them for those as well. But these make a perfect summer lunch.

What You’ll Need to Make These Cucumber Sandwiches:

1 8 oz pack of cream cheese

2 tbsp fresh dill

1 lemon

1 tbsp fresh parsley

3 tbsp mayonaise

Sliced sourdough bread (preferably)

1 large english cucumber or if using a regular one make make sure to peel

Directions:

Before making, allow the cream cheese to softened before making. In a mixer with a whip attachment, add the cream cheese, grate the lemon for it’s zest and add the mayo. Cut the lemon in half and add only half of its juices. Chop th parsley and dill. Add them to the bowl.

Whip everything together until you get a creamy consistency. Slice the cucumber thinly. Spread both sides of the bread and lay a layer of cucumbers over one half. Top with other slice and cut into small squares if using for a tea. Cut the crust off if desired. If making for lunch I don’t do either.
