CHEF’S TIP Pick firm cucumbers with few seeds, either the small ones or young ones are good. 


One ReadyMix KetoBun loaf (12 – 16 slices) from Seriously Keto

● Cucumbers, sliced thinly to your preference (see Chef's Tip)

Lemony-Dill Spread: 220 g softened cream cheese

● 1⁄3 cup roughly chopped dill, extra to garnish

● 2 fresh lemon juice

● 1 tsp grated lemon zest

● ¼ tsp salt

● A pinch of pepper

1. LEMONY-DILL SPREAD Whisk the cream cheese until there are no lumps. Add in the dill, lemon juice, lemon zest, and salt and pepper. Mix until well combined.

2. Chill the spread mixture for at least 2 hours (or overnight) in an airtight container to allow the flavours to meld. 

3. Thaw the spread for about 30 mins before using it. It is easier to assemble the sandwich when the mixture has softened.

4. Spread a thin layer of the lemony-dill spread on each slice of bread, and arrange the cucumber slices decoratively on top.

5. Trim the crusts.

6. Cut the sandwiches to your preferred shape and size.

7. Garnish with spare dill. 8. Putting together this treat can be quite fun. You can serve it normally, open faced, or stacked like above!
