This sandwich has always been a favorite of mine. I remember I used to ask my mom to make them when we used to go for picnics. She would lovingly make them and nicely wrap them in aluminum foil. They would not get mushy or moist, even after 2-3 hours.

These sandwiches can also be made for children’s school tiffin as well as wrapped and taken while traveling. However, its better to consume them within 4-5 hours. Two more similar recipes you can check are Cucumber sandwich and Tomato cheese sandwich recipe.

These sandwiches can also be made for breakfast or as an evening snack. Its a quick, simple and easy, no fuss sandwich recipe. Its so quick that you could also make these when you are in no mood to cook and want something nutritious and filling to eat.

Serve tomato cucumber sandwiches with potato chips or banana chips or mint chutney or mint coriander chutney. A cup of hot tea and french fries or potato wedges on side will also go very well.

4. Sprinkle two to three pinches of pepper powder or freshly ground pepper, cumin powder and salt on the tomato-cucumber slices. If using salted butter, then you can skip the salt. Also, if you are making these sandwiches to take during travel, picnic or for tiffin box, then avoid salt. As the tomatoes and cucumber will release water due to the presence of salt and thus the sandwiches will become soggy and moist.
