Cucumber Sandwiches


White bread


Kewpie Mayonnaise (or unsalted butter)


Peel and slice the cucumber as thinly as possible. You could save some time and use a mandoline if you have one.

Drizzle about 1 teaspoon of the sweet Japanese mayo onto a slice of bread. Spread evenly, all the way to the edges. If you have any "extra," scrape it off and slather onto a second slice.

Arrange slices of cucumber in a single layer.

Top with the second slice of bread and cut off the crusts.

Cut the sandwich on the diagonal twice, making four dainty triangles.

YIELDS: As many servings as you have slices of bread and cucumbers.
