Civilized (Recipe: Cucumber Tea Sandwich)


  • Cucumber Dill Tea Sandwiches
  • yield: I don’t know now much this yields. It’s all according to the amount of dill cream cheese you want to spread on your bread Shug.
  • I “Southernized” the dill cream cheese spread by adding a big dollop of Duke’s mayonnaise. Not only does it add flavor but it make the cream cheese very spreadable. You don’t want to over-do dill in this spread. It has a strong flavor that will step all over the delicate flavor of cukes.
  • I like to partially peel the cukes and leave just enough of the peel to add a nice green splash of color.
  • 8 ounces softened cream cheese
  • 2 heaping tablespoons Duke’s mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill minced
  • dash kosher salt
  • white bread
  • cucumber sliced thinly


  • Whip softened cream cheese and mayonnaise until creamy. Add fresh dill and salt. Stir.
  • Spread each slice of bread with the cream cheese mixture making sure the surface is covered entirely to protect the bread from sogginess. Place four cucumber slices on one piece of bread and top with another piece of bread. Trim crusts. Cut in desired shapes.
