Get excited for a very royal slice of toast on this fine Toast Tuesday!

Do you remember having tea parties with your friends when you were little? I used to love getting dressed up and enjoying overly sugared tea and all of the adorable little tea sandwiches. One of the classic tea sandwiches at my tea parties was an English Cucumber and Cream Cheese sammie. Although the fun days of tea parties and teddy bears are over, I still enjoy cooling off on a hot summer day with a refreshing glass of iced green tea and heart slice of whole-wheat toast with cream cheese and cucumber. I really want to bring Tea Parties back… they are just too cute! Get ready for this quick and easy summer snack… pinkies up!

Cucumber Tea Toast
Serves 1

1 slice honey whole-wheat bread (I used Milton’s)
1/4 cucumber – sliced
1 Tbsp nonfat cream cheese

Toast the bread. Slice the cucumber into thin slices. Evenly spread the cream cheese on the toast and top with cucumber slices. Enjoy with tea!

    I’m all for bringing back tea parties! I’ve recently hosted a few for the ladies in my family, and I have so much fun making dainty little bite sized treats to share. Love the cucumber sandwiches! If you want to try a delicious tea, I just discovered Celestial Seasonings Sweet Coconut Thai… heavenly! 🙂

    Also would be yummy with sunflower seeds on top. I used to eat bagel sandwiches with cream cheese and sunflower seeds spread on both sides and sandwich makings inbetween. So yummy!!

    I made this last week, but instad of using fat free cream cheese (just because I don’t like it) I used a wedge of Laughing Cow garlic and herb cheese. It was so good and flavorful! I have a hard time enjoying most vegetables, but this was really yummy and I will definitely be making these often! Thanks!
