open-faced sandwiches

No Tea party would be complete without them - yes! i am talking about those refreshing cucumber - tomato sandwiches , one of nature's summer gift to us ,they are quick, easy and delicious! Here I am making them open- faced just to show off those gorgeous colours because we eat with our eyes first! right!

Another thing i have discovered is that with raw tomatoes i just tend to eat around them so here I have cooked them a bit- makes a world of difference.

ingredients for open-faced sandwiches

Ingredients- serves eight

  • Bread slices-8 (preferably sandwich bread)
  • Butter - as per requirement
  • Cheese spread- as per requirement
  • Cucumber - 1 large
  • Tomato - 2 large
  • Black pepper - acc. to taste

Method -

Slice the cucumber into thin slices with a potato-slicer (that's the easy bit but looks so professional) , slice tomatoes into slightly thicker slices . Butter bread well on one side and spread cheese -spread , now its really important that you spread both things right to the edges so that there are no dry bits. Next cook tomato slices on a griddle just for a minute , keep aside.

Arrange cucumber and tomato slices in a decorative pattern ,let your imagination rule! Sprinkle black pepper and voila! sandwiches are ready, serve with chilled iced-tea ,beat the heat!
