1 thin cucumber
1 loaf brown bread, sliced
1 stick sweet butter
salt and pepper to taste
Peel cucumber and slice in paper-thin rounds. Salt rounds lightly and place in colander for 15 minutes to drain. Press to release water; pat dry with paper towels.
Spread sliced bread (bakery whole wheat is closest to English Hovis) with softened sweet butter. Put 2 layers of cucumber slices on bottom slice, salt and pepper to taste, and top with another buttered slice. Press lightly with palm of hand. Cut all crusts off with a sharp knife. Cut sandwiches in half diagonally.
