The Simple Cucumber Sandwich
A simple cucumber sandwich was one of my Dad’s favorite summer treats. This wasn’t a dainty sandwich typically served at tea parties as an appetizer, but a hearty manly sandwich with substance.
Making a sandwich was an art with my Father. He would slowly peel the cukes, slice them lengthwise, spread mayonnaise (had to be Hellman’s) then liberally sprinkle with salt and pepper. Then he would share with me. The middle of the sandwich was my favorite. I didn’t like the crust. To this day, I eat the crust first and save the tasty inside last. Don’t ask how I do it, it’s a process, yes I’m weird.

I still love cucumber sandwiches with mayo, always Hellman’s mayonaise, it was, and is, a tradition in my house and like many brand loyalty traditions (Crest, Prego, Zest etc) I will NEVER use Miracle Whip. Yuck.
