Cucumber Sandwiches with Strawberries and Watercress

2573

When summer fruits are at their sweetest, peaches make a worthy substitution for the strawberries in this recipe.

Ingredients:

8 large strawberries
4 ounces (8 tablespoons) Neufchâtel, softened
1 tablespoon chopped mint
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 seedless cucumber, thinly sliced
1 bunch watercress, long stems trimmed
8 slices whole wheat sandwich bread

Method:

Chop 4 of the strawberries and slice the remaining 4. In a large bowl, mash chopped strawberries with a fork. Add Neufchâtel, mint and zest and mix until well combined.

Spread strawberry mixture evenly between slices of bread. Arrange cucumbers, sliced berries and watercress over half of the slices. Top with remaining slices to form sandwiches, then cut in half and serve.
