A Basic Cucumber Sandwich

A Basic Cucumber Sandwich

A sandwich filled with cucumber only!
Even so, it's quite delicious.
This is the base recipe, so if you have time, go ahead and add some ham or egg!

Ingredients: 2 servings

Sliced bread
4 slices
Cucumbers
2
※Mayonnaise
2 tablespoons
※Yogurt (unsweetened)
2 tablespoons
※Magic Salt (seasoned salt)
1/4 teaspoon

Steps

1. Slice the cucumbers into about 1mm thick (you can use a vegetable slicer or mandoline). Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt (not listed in the ingredient list), mix it up with your hands, and let sit for about 5 minutes.
2. Combine the ※ ingredients to make the sauce.
3. When the cucumbers are ready, drain and squeeze them out tightly.
4. Mix the cucumbers with the sauce.
5. Spread the cucumbers on two slices of bread and top them with the remaining slices. Cut off the crusts. Cut each sandwich in half and they're ready.
6. Put on a plate with some baby salad leaves and tomato (if you have them) for a nice presentation!

Story Behind this Recipe

When I was in high school, there was a bakery near the school that sold cucumber *only* sandwiches. They were cheap, so I bought them with my allowance. They were perfectly seasoned with salt, and delicious, and have remained in my memories.
I thought back to those sandwiches, used my favorite yogurt sauce, and made my own variation.
