Tea Time English Cucumber Sandwiches

Totally English and are a necessity at an English Tea! Use a mandolin to make the thinnest cucumber slices.


1 Seedless English Cucumber

½ Teaspoon Salt

5 Tablespoons Softened Butter

16 Very Thin Slices White Bread

32 Fresh Mint Leaves (optional)

Cut cucumber lengthwise in half and remove soft seed area in the center. Cut cucumber crosswise into paper thin slices. In colander set over bowl, toss cucumber and salt. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes. Stir occasionally. Discard liquid in bowl. Pat cucumber slices dry with paper towels. Lightly spread butter on each bread slice. Arrange cucumber on 8 buttered slices. Place 1 mint leaf (if you are using the mint) in each corner of the bread. Top with the remaining bread slices. Trim the crusts and cut each sandwich on the diagonal into quarters. Makes 32 tea sandwiches
