Cool as a Cucumber Sandwich ™

This sandwich is not just for high tea. It's excellent for a refreshing summer snack or lunch. And yes you can leave the crusts on. I won't tell.

4 slices of bread (your choice)
1/3 cucumber ( 12 thin slices)
2 T butter (softened enough for spreading)
2 lettuce leaves (I use romaine, Boston or red leaf)

Cut cucumber into 12 thin slices.
six cucumber slices on 1 slice of bread, overlapping each other.
Arrange 1 lettuce leaf over cucumber slices. Spread 1/2 of butter on 1 slice of bread.
Place buttered side of bread face down over cucumbers.
Cut sandwich in 4ths. Repeat process with remaining ingredients.

Makes 2 servings (8 small sandwiches)
