Mint Cucumber Sandwiches

Summer Picnics won't pass by with out these cool cucumber mint sandwiches. There are several occurrences where we finished the sandwiches on the way before even we reached the picnic spot. This is one cool picnic item for summer which is cherished by grown-ups and kiddos in my family and friends. This sandwich does lot of good to your body as well, While the cucumber cools of the body heat in the summer and mint aids for good digestion ( which is indeed for all the junk we eat during picnic times).

Cucumber Mint Sandwiches
Though I have ditched the White Bread long time ago, this is one recipe where I can't avoid the White Bread. The White Bread contemplates the Bright and Light Greens of mint and cucumber  making the sandwich look Beautiful. Of course my homemade mint chutney makes this sandwich winner....! Here is the recipe, Njoy!



Ingredients:
White Bread - 1 Loaf
Cucumber - 1
Mint Chutney - 1/2 cup
Mayo - 1/3 cup

Method:

  1. First make the Mint Chutney fresh and set aside. 
  2. Wash and trim the  edges of cucumber. Peel it alternatively so that when you cut you will get the bright and light green effects. Cut the cucumber into thin circles (carefully) and keep it aside.
  3. Trim the edges on the 4 sides for all the bread slices. 
  4. Take one bread slice and apply the mint chutney on one side, apply the mayo on one side of another  bread slice. 
  5. Arrange the cucumber slices on the Mayo sided bread slice and top with mint applied bread slice. and press gently and cut into diagonally. Apply the same process for all the bread slices and make the sandwiches. Serve immediately to get the best out of it.!




you can cut some sandwiches into 4 squares like bite sizes which will be handy for kiddos to eat. You can try different fun shapes with the sandwiches too.

Notes:

  • If you have long drive for picnic, I suggest arrange the sandwiches after reaching the picnic spot. Otherwise the more time they stay outside the bread becomes soggy and you will loose the freshness in the sandwich.
  • Or you can wrap them in an plastic cling wrap or seal them in ziplock covers to stay fresh longer.
  • While arranging the sandwich You can sprinkle some black pepper on the cucumbers to add some kick.
  • For more zestiness you can replace regular mayo with Chipotle Mayo.

Hope you have cooled down with this summer recipe..
will meet you soon here, keep checking..!
