I love these two recipes! For the day of the week that I don’t eat meat the cucumber sandwich is great for lunch or dinner. I don’t eat bread more than two times a week. I generally don’t do well eating grains (even gluten-free). I hope you enjoy these recipes.
Cucumber & herb sandwich
2 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill or herb of your choice (I use dill and rosemary)
Juice of 1 lemon
2 slices gluten-free bread
1/2 organic cucumber thinly sliced (I like mine thick)
Herbs from my garden
In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, herbs, lemon juice.
I put the cream cheese on both sides of the bread. Arrange the cucumber slices on top of the bread and wa la it is ready to eat.
