No afternoon tea is complete without cucumber sandwiches. They are so easy to make and hardly need a recipe, however there are one or two tips we can offer to ensure that they are fit for your friends, family or even the Queen should she be stopping by.
Cutting the cucumber sandwiches into triangles or fingers is a personal choice, some have gone so far as to cut the sandwich into a perfect circle to match a single thick cut cucumber. Cucumber sandwiches will vary greatly from your local tea rooms, to country estates to the Ritz, so do what pleases you!
Use only soft white sliced bread for this recipe, as this will help you achieve a good square when you remove the crusts. If you wish to stick to tradition, this is no place for a sourdough or thick granary.
So delicious! Perfect for afternoon tea. - 15 Nov 2015
