Spicy Cucumber Tea Sandwiches Recipe

Tea sandwiches aren't always the most flavorful, bold, and zesty food. They're small, crustless, and served with English tea, and sliced cucumber and butter or cream cheese is a popular tea sandwich filling.

– 1 English cucumber – ¾ teaspoon kosher salt – ½ cup fresh cilantro leave – 6 jarred Calabrian chili peppers (or preferred chili variety) – 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese at room temperature – 2 tablespoons mayonnaise – Zest and juice of ½ lime – 8 slices white bread



Paper towel a standard baking sheet and set aside. Take one cucumber end off. Slice the cucumber into thin ⅛-inch slices using a mandoline or chef's knife.
