Mini Cucumber Sandwiches on Rye

Pin It

Continuing on with girl’s day/night, I threw together these little sandwiches to continue our celebration.

Drinking champagne, getting our nails done and treating ourselves to a little berry fruit salad and cucumber sandwiches while chatting it up about how excited we were for our girlfriends big day being here already was just the start to our day. It seemed like months that she was planning and the excitedment was building up but her day was finally here and everything was coming together beautifully.

I make these little bites for occasions such as this, where us girls get together and food isn’t really expected but being the hungry girl that I am, I always come prepared with a little snack that everyone can enjoy and hold you over till either lunchtime or in our case this weekend, the rehearsal dinner we had that night.

The coolness of the cucumber atop the soft spread and hearty bread makes these little sandwiches very addictive without over filling.

We even shared (like good girls do) with the salon manager and a few customers that were waiting their turn in the chair and for all who snagged a bite I recieved nothing but raving compliments on how tastey they were.

How better to spend an afternoon with your best girlfriends than getting manicure/pedicures with cucumber sandwiches and sipping champagne.

Where should I look for the small rye bread? Bread aisle?

Yes it's normally in the bread isle or the area where you can get marinated olives and prepackaged pesto... stuff like that.
