Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) plain brick-style cream cheese, room temperature
  • 8 slices seedy whole-grain bread
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) apricot jam
  • 6 large strawberries, thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) grainy mustard
  • 12 cucumber slices
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) finely chopped celery
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) finely chopped fresh dill
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) lemon zest
  • 16 toothpicks (optional)

Method

  1. Spread cream cheese onto all bread slices. Spread apricot jam on 2 slices and top with strawberry slices. Cap with 2 of the bread slices with cream cheese. Set aside.
  2. Spread mustard on 2 of the remaining cream cheese slices; top with cucumber, celery, dill and zest. Cap with remaining cream cheese bread slices. 
  3. Cut sandwiches in quarters; secure with toothpicks, if desired.
Tip:
For a kid-friendly sandwich, omit the mustard and lemon zest.
