Cucumber Cream Cheese Tea Sandwiches

Cucumber cream cheese tea sandwiches are a classic combination for any party or afternoon tea. Here I add a little more texture and crunch by folding in freshly minced vegetables and herbs to the cream cheese. Serve on white, marble rye or even raisin bread.

Crisp cucumber slices layered with cream cheese tossed with fresh carrots, red bell peppers, scallions and parsley. Sandwich in between crustless bread for your next get together.
