    Great for an afternoon tea or as a light lunch or dinner with a bowl of your favorite soup.


    • These ingredients are for 4 Sandwiches:
    • 8 slices of bread (Your Choice)
    • 8 ounces whipped cream cheese
    • 1-2 Tbs Chopped dill
    • 1 large English cucumber peeled or
    • 1 large cucumber peeled and seeded
    • 1-2 cups washed and dried watercress stems removed
    • salt & pepper to taste


    1. Allow the cream cheese to come to room temperature. Add the dill and about a ¼ teaspoon each of salt & pepper. Whisk briskly to combine, taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
    2. Take the peeled cucumber and on a mandoline slice them as thin as you can without them losing their shape.
    3. Spread the cream cheese mixture over one side of all eight slices of bread. Arrange the cucumbers by overlapping in rows to cover 4 bread slices completely. Lightly salt & pepper the cucumbers. Now arrange a layer of watercress over the cucumbers. Top with the other slices of bread.
    4. For truly traditional sandwich cut the crusts off and then in 4- 6 pieces depending on how big your bread is. Each section should be a "2 bite" piece.
