Cucumber Sandwiches with Strawberries and Watercress

Cucumber Sandwiches with Strawberries and Watercress

Serves 4

Perfect for brunch or afternoon tea, these sandwiches come together in a flash. When summer fruits are at their sweetest, peaches make a worthy substitution for the strawberries in this recipe.

  • 8 large strawberries, divided
  • 4 ounces (8 tablespoons) Neufchâtel, softened
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 seedless cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch watercress, long stems trimmed
  • 8 slices whole wheat sandwich bread

Roughly chop 4 of the strawberries and slice remaining 4. In a large bowl, mash chopped strawberries with a fork. Add Neufchâtel, mint and zest and mix until well combined.

Spread strawberry mixture evenly between slices of bread. Arrange cucumbers, sliced berries and watercress over half of the slices. Top with remaining slices to form sandwiches, then cut in half and serve.
