Home Made Cucumber Sandwiches

These classic Cucumber Sandwiches are a fresh and tasty vegetarian lunch option that comes together in minutes!


  • 2 oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 slices soft wheat bread, (I used Wegmans soft 100% Whole Wheat Bread)
  • ½ a fresh cucumber, thinly sliced


  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, yogurt, dill, lemon juice, salt, and pepper and stir together until mixed.
  • Use a silicone spatula or butter knife to divide the cream cheese mixture into four equal sections. Spread a section of cream cheese mix across the surface of each slice of bread so that all four slices have cream cheese mix on one side. Lay cucumber slices over the cheesy surface of two of the slices of bread and cover with the remaining slices so that the cucumber layer has cream cheese on both sides. Cut the sandwich into quarters or “fingers (rectangles) and serve.
