Why Are Cucumber Sandwiches So Good?
Cucumber sandwiches are great to serve because they are light, refreshing and very inexpensive to make.
My family loves to enjoy them often when we host tea parties and brunches,
Will Cucumber Make Sandwiches Watery?
Cucumbers can make sandwiches watery if not made fresh.
When preparing cucumber sammies, it’s best to make them just prior to an event.
That said, when there is a barrier on both slices of the bread, such as cream cheese, that helps keep the moisture away from the bread.
How Far Ahead Can you Make Cucumber Sandwiches?
You can gather all of the ingredients and slice up the cucumbers ahead of time, but not more than a day.
However, I would hold off making cucumber sandwiches until you are within a few hours of serving.
How Do You Keep Cucumber Sandwiches From Getting Soggy?
The answer is to add a barrier between the bread and the sliced cucumbers.
In this recipe, we spread whipped cream cheese on both slices of bread.
Cucumber Sandwiches Work Well With a Picnic Date Menu Too

Notes About Cucumber Sandwich With Cream Cheese
While I recommend using fresh cucumbers from the garden or local farmer’s market, any cucumbers you find at your local grocery store will do.
Because I love to grow cucumbers, I’m always looking for ways to use them in recipes which is why I’m tying this one to my garden.
If you aren’t growing your own cucumbers, no worries, head to your favorite market and pick some up.
Because there are two types of cream cheese, block and whipped, I prefer the whipped kind because it’s easier to spread.
But you can use whichever kind you like or have on hand.
You can make cucumber sandwiches with cream cheese with any kind of bread you want, but I think it’s best with a thin-sliced variety.
