Original recipe makes 4 servings Change Servings


  1. Combine goat cheese, lemon juice and zest, olive oil, dill and grated garlic in a large bowl and fold together thoroughly with a rubber spatula.
  2. Spread the soft cheese mixture evenly on all eight pieces of bread. Lay a thin layer of sliced cucumbers on four of the slices. Sprinkle sliced shallot over the cucumber layers and top with the other piece of bread.
  3. Cut each sandwich into three rectangular little tea sandwiches and serve immediately. And you don't have to eat them with your pinkies raised up in the air. But you can. It's kinda fun.

I decided to make this for lunch as I had some goat cheese sitting around, and I am very glad that I did. I made the recipe the same, with the only change being that I used whole wheat bread instead of sourdough, which I didn't have. I imagine sourdough would be great too. What a nice lunch, I had this sandwich with a fresh fruit salad and I will definately make this again. I will deliberately buy goat cheese just for this. Soooooo good.

I made these for a baby shower along with other sandwiches. Everyone raved about the cucumber sandwiches.

This was awesome! The only thing is that it made about double what would fit on 4 sandwiches (So not complaining though) and I only used about 2/3 of the goat cheese called for (because it was sold in 11 oz packages at the store). Making this easier: Throw it all in the food processor.

Fabulous! I was looking for a light lunch today, and I found this to be extremely refreshing! The flavors blend together very well, and it's unique compared to the usual sandwich fare. I had to change a few things based on what I had on hand. I used honey whole wheat, which was good, but I'm betting sour dough would've been a knockout. I used a regular onion rather than a shallot, and I had to use dried dill instead of fresh. I scaled down the recipe using only about 3/4 of a log of goat cheese and 1.5 tsp of dried dill, if anyone is curious. Great recipe! Thanks for sharing.

Everyone loved them!! I did shortcut the recipe though by using herb goat cheese with a little less oil to make it spreadable. But the recipe is very easy.
