re·cipe: cucumber sandwiches

February 5, 2013

Up until recently, if you were to mention cucumber sandwiches to me, I would snicker and think back to the movie How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (remember Andie crashing Ben's boys' night!??). Cucumbers have always been a dear friend of mine, but cucumber sandwiches just seemed silly.

Enter Arbonne and my lovely leader. She brought a batch of cucumber sandwiches to an event of mine and I was hooked. No, really...I politely insisted on keeping the leftovers and knowing the recipe.

At another event I hosted, I made them myself. Two of my cousins showed up, and both had the same response I did. I gladly shared the leftovers since I could now make them whenever!

I almost feel like sharing this recipe is cheating in some book of blog laws somewhere. It's so ridiculously easy - probably one step harder than telling you to go to the store and buy a box of Oreos. I went back and forth on sharing this because it was so easy, but then I remembered my reaction and that of my cousins (and now the rest of the family since I made them for the Super Bowl), and I realized how cruel it would be not to share.

So, take advantage of the easiness and enjoy the yumminess!
