A few weeks ago I hosted a little luncheon with some of my favorite lady friends here in Austin. I wanted to show them how much I appreciated their friendship, support and guidance. The lunch was simple, but super duper tasty with tea sandwiches and a chickpea & mango salad. In creating the menu, I wanted to push myself and come up with some new recipes with ingredients from my garden. Using fresh basil, parsley, cucumbers and jalepenos, I came up with two tea sandwich recipes (the second recipe I’ll share in a future post). I wanted to share my favorite one today! It’s so embarrassingly easy, but oh so yummy. It goes to show sometimes the best recipes are made from basic ingredients. See recipe below and host a gratitude luncheon today!
Purchase your favorite artisan bread from a local bakery. Combine cream cheese (at room temperature), craisins, lots & lots of pepper and chill. Slice cucumbers. Spread your cream cheese spread on the artisan bread, top with the sliced cucumbers and add more pepper!
