Cucumber Sandwich

You don’t need to host a full out tea party to enjoy these classic little sandwiches! With that being said… I do love myself a good high tea with friends. Delicious little bites paired with all different kinds of teas? Yes, please! Every time I attend or host a tea party with friends, I’m sure to serve these cucumber sandwiches. They’re always the first to fly off the platter!

These easy to make Cucumber Sandwiches are refreshing, creamy, and perfect for when you need just a little something light. I really love the way that the cream cheese and Greek yogurt create the best tangy, creamy flavor and consistency that balances so well with the crisp cucumbers and soft bread. Every bite of these tea sandwiches is SO satisfying.

While the varying textures are a total treat, the flavors at play are also worth noting. Fresh dill, chives, and of course cucumbers create the most delightful fresh flavor! There’s a reason you can eat quite a few of these sandwiches in the heat of the summer and never feel weighed down. Serve them at your next tea party, lunch with friends, or just as a little snack for yourself next time you want to treat yourself to something cool and delicious!

How to Make Cucumber Sandwiches

This easy no-bake recipe comes together in just a few minutes with budget-friendly ingredients. You can feel like the fanciest tea party host with minimal effort – the best of both worlds!

  1. Create the creamy spread. Mix together the cream cheese, Greek yogurt, chives, dill, and salt and pepper until combined.
  2. Assemble the sandwiches. Spread the cream mixture onto each bread slice. Arrange the cucumber slices across a piece of bread, then top it with the other piece so that the cucumbers are sandwiched between two layers of the cream cheese spread.
  3. Serve and enjoy! Cut the crusts off of the sandwiches. Slice them into triangles or squares and present them on your favorite serving platter. Enjoy!

What’s in a cucumber sandwich?

Here are the simple and inexpensive ingredients you’ll need to make these teatime favorites:

  • Sliced Cucumbers – English cucumbers work best because you don’t have to peel them. I like to give mine a good rinse before slicing. If you can’t find English cucumbers, regular cucumber are a good substitute but you will need to peel them.
  • Cream Cheese – In order to easily mix it with the other ingredients, it’ll need to be softened to room temperature. Remember to let it sit on the countertop for about 30-45 minutes prior to using.
  • Greek Yogurt – It needs to be plain with no other added flavors. You can use low-fat if you’d like.
  • Chopped Chives – This ingredient really helps to enhance that overall fresh flavor!
  • Chopped Dill – You’ll need fresh dill, not dried.
  • Salt and Pepper – Try not to be too heavy-handed with these simple seasonings. Too much salt and pepper can easily ruin these sandwiches.
  • White Bread – Any brand will work! If you feel like really showing off, you can always use my favorite recipe for homemade white bread.

Can I make cucumber sandwiches ahead of time?

Absolutely! If you’re making them ahead of time, do so 1 day ahead. Keep the sandwiches stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 24 hours prior to serving. I prefer making my cucumber tea sandwiches the day before I serve them because it really helps them to get the best cool temperature and the herb flavors have time to develop.
