Cucumber sandwich

Category: 

This variation of the classic English appetizer is made with the addition of balsamic vinegar and Worcestershire sauce to cream cheese. This creates a delicious and flavorful spread combined with fresh cucumbers. The decoration made with thin slices of cucumber is easy to prepare, just follow my instructions below.
