Cucumber Tea Sandwiches are the ideal refreshing sandwiches are made with cucumbers and a simple herbed cream cheese spread. Perfect for an afternoon tea or a nice sunny picnic.
Cucumber sandwiches are a classic finger sandwich for luncheons or teas, but they’re also a sandwich we enjoy at picnics or lunches!
Cream cheese and fresh herbs combine to create the ideal spread, which is topped with fresh sliced cucumbers for a refreshing taste.
Cucumbers are a summertime favorite that are ideal for making refreshing Creamy Cucumber Salads, tasty dips (such as Tzatziki Sauce), and, of course, delicious Cucumber Sandwiches! I’ve enjoyed these during my bridal shower for as long as I can remember… Sandwiched between crustless bread are paper thin cucumbers, dill and chive cream cheese spread, and a dill and chive cream cheese spread.
These cucumber sandwiches can be prepared up to 24 hours ahead of time.
They will not get soggy if the bread is fully coated with the dill cream cheese spread. Once prepared and sliced, put in a tightly sealed container. Refrigerate after preparing. I like to let them sit out for about 20 minutes before serving.

How To Make Cucumber Tea Sandwiches
Servings: 10-15 tea sandwiches | Course: Appetizer, Lunch | Cuisine: American
- 8 ounces Cream Cheese (we used plant-based, can sub for regular cream cheese, softened)
- 3 Tbsp Homemade Mayo (or Vegan Mayo)
- 1 Tsp Fresh Dill (chopped)
- ¼ Tsp Garlic Powder
- Salt & Pepper (to taste)
- ½ Long English Cucumber (thinly sliced)
- 1 Loaf Sliced Bread (bread of your choice, crusts removed)
Prep: 15 minutes
Time needed: 15 minutes.
- In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese and mayonnaise. Then, add in seasonings to taste. Mix with a spatula until smooth. Don’t forget to add in the fresh chopped dill. Mix again and set it aside.
- Spread the cream cheese mixture on the bread slices. Now, take the thinly sliced Cucumbers and layer over the cream cheese mixture.
- Then layer the other bread slice on top. Remove the crusts from the remaining bread slices and cut each sandwich half diagonally or in thirds, triangles. (If you’re making these for a shower or afternoon tea, you can garnish them with additional herbs.)
- Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.
