These sandwiches are really healthy and easy to make and there are many variations && here are a few:
For cucumber cream cheese sandwiches (makes 6)
6 slices white bread
6 tablespoons cream cheese
Leaves from 1 bunch mint, washed and spun dry
1 large cucumber, sliced paper-thin
Lay out 3 pairs of white bread. Using a butter knife, spread 1 tablespoon of cream cheese or less on each exposed side of the bread slices. Distribute 1 tablespoon or less of mint leaves evenly across 3 slices of bread, then top with 9 thin slices of cucumber. With remaining slices, assemble sandwiches by placing cream cheese side of the bread down on top of cucumbers. Cut off crusts and slice each sandwich into 3 mini sandwiches.
Cucumber and Lemony Dill Cream Cheese Tea Sandwiches (makes 12)
4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 slices good-quality white bread*
1/3 large English seedless cucumber (about 4 inches), thinly sliced
In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, fresh dill, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Season the mixture with salt and pepper.
Lay the slices of bread on your work service and distribute the cream cheese evenly among each slice, spreading into a thin layer. Arrange the cucumber slices in rows over 3 slices of the bread. Top with the remaining bread, and cut into quarters so there are 4 pieces from each sandwich. Serve immediately.
