Cucumber and Watercress Tea Sandwiches

Ingredients:Vegetarian
1 English Cucumber, thinly sliced (skinned or stripped is fine)
3 cups fresh Watercress, cleaned
1 cup fresh Chives
1 1/2 cups Cream Cheese
24 slices of white Bread

Directions:

  • In a medium size bowl, incorporate the Chives into the Cream Cheese.
  • Spread a thin layer of Cream Cheese on one side of each piece of Bread.
  • On 12 slices of bread, add Cucumber slices to the cheese-covered side.
  • On the remaining 12 slices add the Watercress, evenly divided to the cheese-covered side.
  • Combine one Watercress slice to one Cucumber slice. It is easiest to make the Cucumber the bottom slice.
  • With a serrated knife, carefully remove the crusts from the sandwiches, and slice diagonally.

NOTES: The cucumbers may sweat liquid, and if prepared too far in advance, become wilted and/or make the bread soggy.

Variations:
Curry Chicken Tea Sandwiches

  1. Like the sound of these cucumber sandwiches, but would prefer to leave out the watercress. Not a lover of watercress, but will certainly use the recipe when entertaining!! Thanks.
