Simple though the sandwich might seem to you, it continues to be a hot favourite with kids of all age groups! Perhaps it is the handy sumptuousness of a sandwich that makes it so lovable, or its versatility, but the fact remains that it is one of the most popular tiffin treats across the world.

This refreshing and filling Cucumber Cheese Sandwich stays fresh for at least 4 hours, and is a very quick fix-up that you can easily prepare in the mornings.

Just make sure that you slice the cucumber very thinly so that the sandwich stays together. Also pack Bourbon Milkshake in a thermos flask for a perfect short break combo.

Cucumber Cheese Sandwich ( Tiffin Treats) recipe with step by step photos
  1. For making the Cucumber Cheese Sandwich (Cucumber Sandwich), clean and wash a cucumber.
  2. Peel the skin with the help of a peeler and discard it. You can keep the peels intact as they are rich in fiber but if doing so, ensure the cucumbers are organic and pesticide free.
  3. Cut the cucumber into thin slices using a sharp knife or a mandolin.
  4. Trim the edges of all the bread slices and keep aside. We have made use of whole wheat bread but, you can use any type of bread – white, masala, multigrain. Also, trimming the edges is optional. Don’t discard the trimmings, you can use them to make the sandwich chutney or breadcrumbs later.
  5. Apply ½ tbsp of cheese spread on each bread slice. In fact, cucumber complements mayonnaise and cream cheese well too. If you don’t have cheese spread then make use of cheese slice or grated cheese to make the Cucumber Cheese Sandwich.
  6. Place 2 bread slices on a clean, dry surface with the cheese spread side facing upwards.
  7. Arrange 6 cucumber slices over one bread slice.
  8. Sandwich it with another bread slice, with the cheese spread side facing downwards.
  9. Cut the Cucumber Cheese Sandwich (Cucumber Sandwich) diagonally into 2 triangles. You can sprinkle little salt and pepper if you like but, since cheese spread is quite salty we haven’t added any.
  10. Repeat steps 6 to 9 to make 3 more Cucumber Cheese Sandwiches.
  11. If you wish to pack it for lunch, then wrap the Cucumber Cheese Sandwich (Cucumber Sandwich) in an aluminium foil, and pack in an air-tight tiffin box.
  12. Cream Cheese Sandwich, Tomato Cheese Sandwich , Besan Chilla Sandwich  are some other quick and easy sandwich recipes that can be packed for tiffin.
