Cucumber and Dill Finger Sandwiches


Dig into these tasty finger sandwiches at your next afternoon tea. Creamy, rich goat cheese subtly seasoned with dill and garlic will have even your most discerning tea partiers reaching for seconds.

4 servings


  • ½ cup Carapelli Premium 100% Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 2 cups soft goat cheese

  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon

  • 1 bunch dill, coarsely chopped

  • 1 clove garlic, finely grated

  • 8 slices sourdough pullman bread, crusts carefully cut off

  • 1 English cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced

  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced

  • Fresh ground pepper and kosher salt to taste


  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.
