Cucumber Flower Sandwich


  • Good white bread
  • Cream cheese
  • Lime juice
  • Native finger limes


  • Slice cucumbers and lightly salt. Allow to stand for 10 minutes to draw out moisture.
  • Mix enough lime juice with the cream cheese to soften to a spreading consistency.
  • Spread onto thinly sliced bread.
  • Add a layer of cucumbers and top with a second slice of bread.
  • Cut sandwich into fingers, removing the crusts.
  • Put a dollop of cream cheese on the middle of each finger.
  • Cut the remaining cucumber slices in half to make semi circles.
  • Roll one semi circle and pace in the centre of each finger, using the cream cheese to keep it in place.
  • Wrap the remaining cucumber around the central ‘petal’ to create a flower.
  • Garnish with native finger lime.
