2 slices of soft sourdough bread

1 tbsp of softened butter softened (butter from grass-fed cows is best)

1 Persian cucumber, thinly sliced

Sea salt and black pepper

From The Author

A little butter on this easy sandwich, as well a green vegetable, gives you a serving of both a healthy fat and a fibrous plant. Perfect for a light lunch or snack!

  1. Lay the bread out side by side and butter both pieces.
  2. Lay cucumber slices onto on piece of the bread.
  3. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Top with remaining slice of bread (place buttered side against the cucumber).
  5. Cut sandwich into halves or quarters. If preferred, cut the crust off the sandwich
