Can Cucumber Sandwiches Be Made Ahead?

No, do not make cucumber sandwiches ahead of time. The moisture from the cucumbers will release and cause the sandwiches to become soggy. It's best to serve cucumber sandwiches the day you make them. You can make the cream cheese mixture ahead and refrigerate it in an airtight container for up to one day.

What Goes Well with Cucumber Sandwiches?

Serve these cucumber sandwiches with your favorite store-bought or homemade potato chips, cauliflower chips, sweet potato chips or beet chips. They also pair well with a chilled soup and crunchy salad.
