How to Make Cucumber Sandwiches

  • Prepare the ingredients. Slice the cucumber into thin slices. Chop up the fresh dill and fresh chives into small pieces.
  • Combine the ingredients. Add the cream cheese, mayonnaise, dill, chives, and garlic powder to a bowl. Mix well.
  • Season. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  • Make the sandwiches. Spread the cream cheese mixture on one side of all of the bread slices. Top one bread slice with a cucumber slice and cover with another bread slice.
  • Cut the sandwich diagonally.

Can I Make This Cucumber Sandwich Ahead?

You can definitely make these sandwiches ahead of time. If you plan on doing so, here’s what I recommend:

  • Hold off on slicing up the cucumber until you’re ready to make the sandwiches so that your bread won’t get soggy. Also, take note that cucumber slices usually only stay good for 1-2 days in the refrigerator.
  • You can prepare the cream cheese mixture ahead and refrigerate it until you’re ready to use.
  • If you do make the sandwiches and want to store them in the refrigerator, keep them sealed up in an airtight container and individually wrapped. These sandwiches are best consumed within 1-2 days of making them.

Can I Use Dried Herbs Instead of Fresh Herbs?

You can use dried herbs instead of fresh herbs if you would prefer. Personally, I like using fresh herbs because I find the flavors more potent.

Fresh dill is packed full of essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants and may help protect you from diseases like cancer and heart disease. (1)

Fresh chives are just as nutrient-dense. They’re a rich source of micronutrients, disease fighting antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory compounds. (2)

As far as sandwich recipes go, there’s no denying that you get a ton of bang for your buck when it comes to nutritional value with this one.
