A three step guide to the perfect cucumber sandwich.

cucumber tea sandwiches

Tea time is the perfect time to indulge in this lovely little treat. An English staple, the cucumber sandwich is a venerable institution at a high tea. Here’s the simplest possible way to make the perfect open cucumber sandwich.

The ingredients:

  • 6 slices of white bread (cut into circles with a cookie cutter)
  • 100 grams butter
  • Chives or spring onion stalks diced
  • 1 cucumber, sliced in a circular fashion


3 simple steps to the easiest and tastiest cucumber sandwich.


Step 1.

Mix the chives or finely chopped spring onion stalks with the butter.

Step 2.

Spread the mixture onto the circular white bread.

Step 3.

Top with a slice of cucumber and enjoy.


Now if you really want to jazz up this ‘pukka’ British tea staple, consider a few additional toppings like paprika, aamchoor (dried mango powder) or chaat masala. You could add these to the butter and chive mixture for that extra little kick of flavour.
