Cucumber Sandwiches

The garden’s going well this year: We’ve harvested our first two dozen tomatoes this weekend, and we picked our second cucumber.

My favorite thing to do with cucumbers is to make cucumber sandwiches, as follows:

  1. Remove crusts from white bread and cut into squares. I’ve been using Orowheat County White bread, which I cut with a large bread knife.
  2. Spread little dollops of mayonnaise on one side of each slice and place the slices on a serving tray.
  3. Peel the cucumber and cut into slices. Put each slice on a piece of bread.
  4. Shake salt and pepper on top of the finished sandwiches.
  5. If making more than one layer, put wax paper between the layers.
  6. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  7. Consume greedily.

They’re not true “sandwiches” since they have only one square of bread each. But who cares? Also: Eat them the same day you make them, because the bread gets soggy if you leave them overnight. Ick.

But meanwhile, yummmmmm:
