I know it sounds silly to write a ‘How to cucumber sandwich’, but (BIG FAT SUPER BUT) so often they turn out horrible, flavourless, and soggy. I had to share my favourite version.
- Waitrose brand half wholemeal bread
- Slightly salted butter, ladle it onto both slices of bread
- from a solid piece of butter not easy spread!
- Peeled cucumber slices
- Fresh parsley
Best eaten when your mom is visiting and you are on a trip to the Scottish Borders. Traquair house has really good cappuccino, and you can sit in their beautiful garden enjoy the coffee and your own sandwiches.
Tip: Traquair house has a micro-brewery, using 18th century recipes (if memory serves right). The ale makes for the best steak and ale pie! That reminds me I ought to share this recipe with you later.
