Cucumber subs

    These cucumber sub sandwiches are so easy to make and great for your low carb or keto diet! Cute and healthy appetizers for your next party!

    Aren’t these so adorable? I love making snacks with cucumbers because there are so many things you can do with them that are fun and original. I thought it would be fun to make sandwiches or subs out of english cucumbers. This would also work with other cucumber varieties, so if you have them growing in your garden this is a neat idea to use them up. They always seem to be so plentiful at harvest time.

    I also made an appetizer out of these further down the page that is great to bring to a party. My kids really liked eating them this way as well and thought these were so cute!

    You can use any all natural meat in these or even cut up chicken would work well for the meat. I made mini skewers out of tooth picks with red onion and mini tomatoes for a colorful decoration. My daughter ended up eating them and liking them! If you are taking these somewhere it’s a nice addition to the tray to add some color.

    You can add any sandwich add ons you want to this. These could include; bacon, tomatoes, onions, mayo etc.

    You can eat these cucumber sandwiches as pictured above or you can slice them up and place them on a plate that way. They are easier to eat once you slice them, so this is my preferred way to enjoy them. I really enjoyed these and the kids loved having these for an after school treat. I did use tooth picks to hold these together once sliced, so if you are giving these to the kids make sure to remove them first. The tooth picks make a great little handle for appetizers at a party to pick them up.

    I hope you enjoy these cute little cucumber subs!

    Cucumber subs:

    medium to large cucumbers
    turkey, ham, or other deli meat slices or shaved
    bacon (optional)
    green onions (optional)
    tomatoes (optional)
    any sandwich fillers (optional)
    Laughing Cow cheese or mayo or cream cheese or any other condiment

    Cut the cucumber length-wise, from tip to tip. Scoop out the inside of the cucumber to make room for your sandwich fillers. Add meat, veggies, and other sandwich makings to the inside of the cucumber. Place one half of the cucumber on the other half. Enjoy!!
