The Best 4-Ingredient Summer Snack: Cucumber Tea Sandwiches

In my opinion, cucumber tea sandwiches are the best 4-ingredient summer snack ever. 
If you use low-fat or no-fat cream cheese I think you can even call them healthy!

Your four ingredients:

You can find the cocktail bread in the bakery section of most grocery stores. They usually have a few varieties. I have used rye, but pumpernickel is my favorite. And it's 100% whole grain-- so no guilt here!

Ok, here's the hard part:

  1. Spread the cream cheese on the bread.
  2. Put a slice of cucumber on the bread.
  3. Sprinkle a little dill on the whole thing.

And the hardest part of all:
Trying to not eat all 45 of these babies!

Every time I eat these sandwiches, I'm reminded of the movie, "The Importance of Being Earnest". It's hilarious.

Here's the clip:
(I'm sorry about the subtitles-- this was the only one I could find.)

  1. I love these too (what a coincidence). I did not make the association with movie but there it is. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Love cucumber sandwiches, love that movie, love your post and I love the lighting in your photographs.

  3. Thanks, Megan! I think a few of the neighbors thought I was crazy because I taking pictures of cucumbers in my driveway. I can't help it though because if I want any natural light, I have to go outside!

  4. Our cucumber plants has lots of blooms so it's going to be a bumper crop this year. Thanks for the inspiration! I should have planted some dill though. :)
