We did cucumber sandwiches like this for a bring and share event with our neighbours in France. We did it for a laugh, knowing better than to try to beat the French at food. To our surprise, they genuinely liked them and asked us to do them again!My favourite at the moment is a sweet potato wrap (gluten free) spread with a good humous, sometimes swop that out for mayonnaise.
Then I add a handful of sweet and crunchy salad. ( iceberg lettuce thinly sliced red cabbage and carrots)
Then I top that with either grated cheddar or feta cheese cubes or crumbled falafel.
Cucumber sandwiches done "properly" as in for harrods afternoon tea.
White bread thinly sliced
Cucumber peeled and thinly sliced
Butter bread and place cucumber onto slice.
Add top slice, cut off the crusts, cut into triangles and arrange neatly onto tiered cake stand and serve with a good cup of tea made in a pot with tea leaves.
My way ... before I had to go gluten free.
Some medium slices cut from a sandwich loaf buttered
Thick chunky slices of cucumber skin on. A touch of salt.
Slap it all together and enjoy .
I think Jamie says something similar, the more you eat them, the more you like them.I think vegetables come desirable
Finely grated fresh Brussell sprouts might sound horrible, but in reality they're very good, much nicer than boiled to smelly insipidness. Roasted ones are tasty though.
