Cucumber Tea Sandwiches

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Dani Jean

Cut sandwiches after they are assembled to avoid messy edges and have a cleaner look. I find that extra chopped dill is nice. A nice looking garnish is a half a grape flat side down on a slice of cucumber.

I'm extremely partial to cucumber sandwiches, and these were certainly very tasty. I dispensed with the elegance of toothpicks and garnish, though these sandwiches would undoubtedly be most at home on those occasions when elegance is appropriate! I made mine for 'My 3-chefs' as part of a 'take-to-work sandwiches' theme. L-o-v-e-d the creme fraiche and dill! Not at all sure what white pullman bread is; I made mine on crusty - rustic rather than elegant! - ciabatta, which is a favourite of mine when making sandwiches. And I left the crusts on! I also added some grindings of black pepper. So, not elegant, but seriously delicious: thank you for sharing this recipe, Dani Jean!
