Growing up, I cannot tell you how many cucumber sandwiches I had. There are too many to count.
So, now, I am ready for a completely modern version of the cucumber sandwich.
I bet you are ready for one too
Asian Style Cucumber Sandwich is like nothing you have ever tasted! It is definitely not your grandmother’s cucumber sandwich. The flavors are a blend of sweet, sour and salty goodness.
For this recipe, I decided to add some Asian flavoring to make it more interesting. I have always had spicy cucumber sandwich, so, I thought I would keep this recipe on the spicy end.
There is soy sauce and sriracha sauce in which the vegetables will be marinated. Doesn’t that sound delicious?
I am getting hungry just writing about it.
To round out the taste, I topped it with pistachio sauce.
Cream cheese still remains the base in this recipe. I find the texture of it to be completely compatible with any sandwich
I wanted to keep this an easy cucumber sandwich without too much fuss. You can put it into a picnic basket and enjoy it in the park, just like any other sandwich.
The Srirarcha Sauce is definitely the star of this recipe. I enjoyed eating a mildly spicy version of this sandwich.
It got a little messy when eating the sandwich, but, that didn’t stop me from devouring it all at once.
The red bell pepper and the cucumber add a wonderful crunch to this sandwich. Even the onions retained their flavor and crunch. So, I hope I have sold you on this sandwich by now. If not, I will have to bring it to your home and share it with you.
