In our last week’s bounty basket we got a few English cucumbers. These are the long variety with tiny seeds. This simple cucumber sandwich is a perfect teatime snack and the usual sandwiches have a spread of butter and topped with these beauties. Since avocados were on hand, I decided to replace butter with avocado and totally loved the creamy melt in the mouth texture that it gave to the sandwich. Of course, feel free to use butter, mayo, etc. I am sure that would taste divine too.:). We used a mandolin slicer to slice the cucumbers into really thin slices. This sandwich made me scream for summer because of the fresh ingredients. Off to the recipe.
