Eating My Way Through the Alphabet; Letter C

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Eat More: Cucumber Strawberry Sandwiches! Here’s a combination you will truly enjoy: crisp sliced cucumbers with juicy sweet strawberries. Together they come across as eye candy. Whip up a creamy spread of sea salt butter, Neufchâtel cheese, and Italian seasonings to slather across the top of a toasted slice of artisan rye bread. Add a sprig of dill, sprinkled with tiny thyme leaves to crown things off. The results may find you believing you embarked on a journey through the charming countryside of Tuscany.

  1. Good Morning, Judie! Actually any variety of creamed cheese spread can be substituted. I’ve been making my cucumber sandwiches like this for years. This time I added the strawberries since I had them on hand. Surprisingly delish! 🍓
