Mini Cucumber Sandwich Bites

May 09, 2013



Yes, I know.  I cut my cucumbers like a three year old. 

I stink at cutting vegetables, and peeling them, and eating them.

These, I eat.  It's still a veggie even though it's on bread and loaded up with some cheese. (Need to remind my mom of that!)
My sister gave me this recipe. She loves appetizers.  A gathering at her house may possibly have more relish trays, chips, dips, and mini sandwiches than actual sit-down-to eat food.  It's awesome.

These little bites don't have to be for a big gathering though.  Make them for lunch or a snack.  My kids love these.  Some eat just the bread with cheese, others with the cucumber. Some..just cucumber. Dunked in ranch. Others..just the bread.  You get the idea..they are a complex group. :)

Perfect for the spring and summer weather that is coming our way very soon!

  1. I've always loved little cucumber tea sandwiches. :) I actually eat cucumbers A LOT in all kinds of ways but I like the English (Hot House) ones because they're seedless and you can eat the peel. Makes life easy. :)

  5. I love, love cucumbers! Aside from using them in a salad, these veggies are so overlooked! Sandwich bites with Italian dressing and a slice of cucumber on top - it's an absolute deliciousness!

  6. I've been using this recipes for years. It's great. I usually sprinkle a little dill weed on top. it gives a little more color and a nice fresh flavor.
