So whether you’re feeding yourself or a crowd, these cu،ber sandwiches are guaranteed to please!

Ingredients You’ll Need to Make Cu،ber Sandwiches:

  • Cream Cheese– We used regular cream cheese.
  • Fresh Dill & C،es– There are only a few flavors going on here, so it is important to use fre،
  • Plain Greek Yogurt– This will lighten up and soften your cream cheese spread.
  • Lemon Juice– Adds a nice citrusy tang. We used fresh lemon juice!
  • Salt and Pepper– Add to season.
  • English Cu،bers– You want to use english cu،bers here. They have small seeds and a thin skin, so there is no need to ،l or deseed.

Ingredients you need to make cu،ber sandwiches.

How to Make Cu،ber Sandwiches:

  1. Make the herbed cream cheese. Place softened cream cheese in a bowl. Mince the herbs, and add them to the bowl with the greek yogurt, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Stir well, taste, and add more seasoning if needed.
  2. Slice cu،bers and trim bread. Grab your cu،bers and slice them nice and thin. I used a mandolin to get nice even slices. If desired, trim the crusts off your bread.
  3. Assemble the sandwiches. Spread each slice of bread with a thin layer of the cream cheese mixture. Top with a couple layers of sliced cu،bers. Add top slice of bread, cream cheese side down. Cut into triangles if desired.
  4. Enjoy immediately!

Tips & Suggestions:

How long will cu،ber sandwiches last?

These little sandwiches are best enjoyed within an ،ur of making them. Otherwise, you run the risk of the cu،bers getting soggy. But, if you are trying to plan ahead, the cream cheese spread can be made a day or two in advance.


For a fun and delicious variation, use ،tail rye bread. Add a nice smear of the herbed cream cheese, top with a couple slices of cu،ber, then garnish with a s، of fresh dill.

Spread the cream cheese mixture on a tortilla. Top with sliced cu،bers and roll up tightly. Slice into 1-inch rounds for cu،ber pinwheels.

Add a layer of thinly sliced radishes along with the cu،bers.
