Cucumber Sandwiches–Southern Style

Tomato sandwiches rule the end of summer. For your garden party, tea party or wedding, you can’t go wrong with a cucumber sandwich. Now you could go with the sort of cucumber sandwiches that one might find in England. I prefer a more southern cucumber sandwich though.

Make a spread from 2 tablespoons of softened butter and 2 tablespoons of blue cheese. Add 2 teaspoons of lemon juice and a dash of red pepper/Tabasco or if you please Frank’s Red Hot to taste.

Slice cucumber thin and chill in ice water with a splash of vinegar and pinch of salt.

Cut some pretty rounds out of bread. (ok, you can go with whatever shape you like, but a biscuit cutter or glass works fast and easy. I’m not fussy.)

Spread with the sandwich spread, add a thin slice of cucumber. Sprinkle some paprika if you wish. Then present as if you were the Queen of the May.
