Cucumber Sandwich

I've been jonesing for a cucumber sandwich for a while now and when the Top Chef Just Desserts episode last week was about tea parties, I knew it was fate.

So I made flax bread, this time using the focaccia-style recipe from which you can find here. This is the second time I made this recipe. The first time didn't really turn out well because I added other herbs and parmesan cheese to the recipe. It made the  bread taste fishy. I know, that's weird, right?

But this time, I stuck to the recipe. It turned out great.

For the cucumber sandwich, I simply sliced cucumbers thinly and let it dry on paper towels. Then I spread butter on one slice of bread, spread  and then I mixed softened cream cheese with a bit of cour cream and onion powder. I spread that mixture over both slices of bread. Then I layered the cucumber slices. I made probably three layers.

It was just as I imagined it to be. Very refreshing, very light and fresh. I felt like a lady.

Hi Trish! Yes Flax bread is really yummy. It depends on what flavorings or extract you use. I've added vanilla, banana and cocoa so far. I wanna try the pandan and ube flavoring that I have too. But I haven't had much time. I promise to post if I do. :)
