Ingredients
  • 4 slices white bread
  • 1/4 English cucumber
  • 1 tablespoon salted butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons minced chives

Instructions
  1. Use a mandoline slicer to cut cucumber into two sizes -- 1/8" and one at the thinnest setting. Get 4 slices of each size.
  2. Dry sliced cucumbers with paper towels.
  3. Mix softened butter and minced chives together in small bowl.
  4. Find a cookie cutter that is the same circumference as the sliced cucumbers and cut eight circles out of the bread. Avoid cutting the crust.
  5. To assemble, butter one side of bread and top with the 1/8" cucumber slice. Butter another piece of bread and place on top of cucumber, butter-side down.
  6. Gently fold the thin cucumber slice in half from the center and skewer the folded side into the tea sandwich with a cocktail fork.
