cucumber sandwich

Cucumber sandwiches used to be a school tiffin staple. Simple bread, a slathering of Amul cheese spread, thinly sliced cucumbers with a dash of pepper or chaat masala - these are flavors we've grown up with. This is my take on the perfect cucumber sandwich, it’s just that like us, it’s grown up a little.
  • Sourdough bread ( Artful Baker)
  • Crisp cucumbers ( local Vendors call them English cucumbers)
  • Philadelphia low-fat cream cheese
  • 10g fresh dill, finely chopped
  • 15g fresh parsley finely chopped
  • white pepper
  • black pepper
  • salt
  • Make the herbed cream cheese:   Add about 2 tablespoons of cream cheese,e in a bowl. Add the dill, parsley and white pepper. Salt is optional here, I prefer leaving it out, mix well and chill.
  • On the bread, lather a generous amount of your own herbed cream cheese. Layer with thick, crisp cucumbers and drizzle with black pepper. Top with another slice of bread and you have a sandwich!
