The quintessential summer sandwich. Slice cucumber paper thin. I use a mandolin. Salt and allow to sit for five minutes or so. Then squeeze very well to remove all the moisture. Cut the crusts of two slices of white bread. (Use them to make breadcrumbs for future use). Soften salted butter and then mix in some finely chopped chives. Spread the butter liberally on both sides. Then drape with the cucumber. Sandwich and eat. Or slice into triangles and serve for afternoon tea.
