Prep time: 5 minutes
Yield: 4 sandwiches
2 medium cucumbers, thinly sliced
8 slices of desired bread (we recommend honey oat wheat bread), toasted, for 4 sandwiches
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon dill
1 teaspoon chives
In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice, garlic, dill and chives. Mix until just combined.
On two pieces of toast of desired bread, spread the aioli onto both pieces, covering facing sides evenly.
Arrange cucumber slices on one piece of toast. When bread is covered, place the other piece of bread on top and press down.
(Optional) Carefully using a serrated knife, cut the sandwich from one corner to the opposite corner for triangular pieces.
