Cucumber sandwiches scream, fancy tea party. Those, of course, would be cut into dainty shapes with their crusts trimmed off. This recipe suggests nothing of the sort.

These are picnic sandwiches. Simple. And honestly, pretty darn tasty.

You’ve gotta follow the directions exactly as they’re written. They leave no room for guessing how to serve, when or with what.

Here’s your answer key:

“Serve with chilled red wine (precooled and put in a thermos) and your favorite brownies or cookies for dessert.”

Brown bread, butter, cucumbers, wine and my favorite cookies…all together. Glorious!
