Cucumber Mint Tea Sandwich

1/2 seedless cucumber, peeled and very thinly sliced (about 32 slices)
1/4 cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves, rinsed, spun dry, and chopped fine
1/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/4 cup cream cheese, room temperature
16 slices best-quality white bread
Salt to taste


Place cucumber slices between layers of paper towels to remove excess moisture.

In a small bowl, combine mint, butter, and cream cheese; spread on one side of each slice of bread. Lay cucumber slices onto the buttered side of 8 slices of bread. Sprinkle with salt. Top with the remaining slices of bread, buttered side down.

Carefully cut the crusts from each sandwich with a sharp knife. Cut the sandwiches in half diagonally and then cut in half again.

Yields 8 whole sandwiches or 16 halves or 32 fourths. Recipe Source here.

  1. Hi Ellen,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. It’s really nice to meet you. I decided to drop by your site, and really enjoyed the visit. I love the picture of you and your children. I am a fellow believer as well. May the Lord bless you and yours.

    Would it be okay for me to add your blog to my blogroll?


  2. Oh, may I come again for tea, please? What yummy looking sandwiches. And I love the gift you have for creating beauty on the plate (and of course in your home. . .and wherever you are). I’m glad you posted again this week!


  3. I love assignments! This is a fun and tasty one, to be sure! It may take a couple of days but by this time next week there will be something over at my place!
    The cucumber mint tea sandwich is a keeper!! I shall place it in my family cookbook to try at a later time.

  4. How neat! I love teas….tea parties…little sandwiches! This recipe will have to be saved!
    I have just scrolled down—reading all and enjoying all….you capture the most incredible things! Herony! Wow! What an awesome display of nests!
    AND that luncheon! Could I sit a spell????
    You are always a blessing Ellen. I am taking a short break from devotional writing with Laced with Grace and Internet Cafe (CWO) for 2 months…hopefully I can visit more often!
    I love it here!!

  5. Thanks for the visit, your ‘Project Looking Through’ pictures are nice.

    I have peanut butter and fat free saltines with my tea. If Mrs. Jim doesn’t make tea, I have coffee. 🙂

    During the next few weeks I will tell of our visit last week to Ireland on my regular blog, JIM’S LITTLE BLOG.
