Slice the tomatoes & cucumbers, later assemble them with an easy homemade or store bought spread, spices and herbs.

These are made just like the English Cucumber Sandwiches but customized to choice. Though white bread is the most common choice to make these tomato cucumber sandwich, you can use any bread of choice, like whole meal bread or white bread.

Usually these sandwiches are made with untoasted bread. The fresh bread is simply buttered generously and then the tomatoes and cucumbers are layered. However if you prefer you may toast the bread for a crisp texture.

In this recipe to make the sandwiches delicious, use a creamy spread like Mayonnaise, cream cheese or Greek yogurt. This gives a rich, creamy and delicious taste. I make these often with Indian Hung curd which is the same as Greek Yogurt or strained yogurt.

These tomato cucumber sandwiches are also spiced with red chilli flakes and ground black pepper for heat. You may skip them if making for kids. Some dried Italian herbs can also be added for flavor.

How to make Tomato Cucumber Sandwich (Stepwise Photos)

1. Thick and firm slices of bread is good for making these sandwiches. Spread soft butter first over the bread slices as it is going to prevent the bread from turning soggy. If you plan to carry these to work, then toast the bread until crisp without applying butter. When it cools down smear the butter. This way the sandwich will keep good for few hours.

2. Spread hung curd or mayonnaise or cheese spread or cream cheese as desired. You can follow this post on how to make hung curd if you do not know how to make it. Alternately add half cup of homemade curd or dahi to a muslin cloth and squeeze off the excess whey.
