Cucumber Sandwiches Are Not Just for Tea Parties

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.

Cucumber Sandwich

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.

I always grow cukes in my garden and when I don’t make pickles I put them on  sandwiches. I’m now on a low carb diet, (recently diagnosed with diabetes) but don’t want to stop eating sandwiches. So I’ve found some low carbohydrate breads and wraps.

  1. Yum, must remember to make these. We’re already on our second jar of pickles. They’re crunchie, sweet and refreshing. Thanks again for the recipe.

    1. Nope, not a fan of tomato sandwiches, picked tomatoes as a kid on a vegetable farm. Don’t like them raw too much. I’m even surprised I grow them at all, but I love them in stewed tomatoes and salsa.
