Garden to Table Recipe: Cool as a Cucumber Sandwich

Summer might as well be here. It’s hot! Want to know how we stay so cool at Garden Supply Company? Try this cucumber sandwich recipe (a twist on your average cuke sandwich) to stay cool as a cucumber using as many fresh ingredients from your own garden as you can!

Cool as a cucumber sandwich



  • 4 ounces cream cheese (room temperature)

  • 2 tbsp fresh dill from the garden (chopped)

  • 1 tbsp fresh chives from the garden (chopped)

  • Juice and zest from one lemon from your container garden

  • Kosher salt to taste

  • Fresh ground pepper to taste

  • 1/3 large cucumber from the garden (thinly sliced)

  • 3 slices of your favorite bread



Combine cream cheese, herbs, lemon zest and juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 

Depending on your preference, toast (or choose not to toast) your bread. If you’re serving at a party, we think it's best serve-yourself-style. Plate your toast and cukes separately and keep your cream cheese mixture in a bowl for your guests to spread to their liking.
