Everyone's favourite finger sandwich gets an exciting twist in this simple and speedy recipe. Slices of soft white bread are spread with a fragrant herby butter and bound prettily with ribbons of refreshing cucumber. 

Using a peeler, slice the cucumber thinly into ribbons. Place on kitchen towel to remove excess water.

Mix the butter, chives, dill and rosemary together. Season with a little salt and freshly ground black pepper then spread over one side of each slice of bread.

Sandwich together 2 slices, remove the crusts and slice each sandwich into 3 fingers. Take a couple of slices of cucumber and wrap tightly around the fingers leaving the seal at the bottom.


You could try this with carrot, salmon or ham slices.
