Ingredients
  1. 1 (14-inch) English cucumber
  2. ½ cup salted butter, softened
  3. 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh tarragon
  4. ½ teaspoon fresh lemon zest
  5. ¼ teaspoon salt
  6. ⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper
  7. 6 slices firm white sandwich bread
Instructions
  1. Cut cucumber into 3 (3-inch) lengths, and cut in half lengthwise. Thinly slice lengthwise on a mandoline, and lay on paper towels.
  2. In a small bowl, combine butter, tarragon, lemon zest, salt, and pepper, stirring to blend. Spread onto each bread slice. Place 4 to 5 cucumber slices on each of 3 bread slices, layering and shingling cucumber slices. Top with remaining 3 bread slices, butter side down.
  3. Using a serrated bread knife, trim crusts from sandwiches, creating 3-inch squares. (Discard crusts.) Cut sandwiches diagonally into quarters, creating 4 triangles.
