Cucumber Sammiches

Cucumber Sammich

Sounds simple, and it is! It's also completely delicious and addictive, and just the cool crunch you're looking for as the weather warms up.


  • 1 English cucumber (these are the kind wrapped in cellophane), sliced into discs
  • 8 oz. cream cheese (I used Tofutti brand)
  • 2 Tbsp. diced chives
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped parsley
  • 1 tsp. dried dill
  • Rye bread
  • arugula 
  • salt and pepper


    1. Let cream cheese soften, then stir in chives, parsley, and dill. 
    2. To assemble 1 sandwich: smear cream cheese on two slices of rye bread, top one half with cucumber slices and the other half with arugula. Add salt & pepper to taste.
