Nordic Breads’ Cucumber Sandwich
Poona kheera, the Indian, cucumber-like fruit, is a great addition to sandwiches and tastes as sweet and juicy, and about as crunchy as a Honeycrisp apple. You can use it any way you would a good slicing cuke. For a one-stop-shopping Poona kheera sandwich, grab a tublet of butter, a hunk of cheese, then some Finnish rye at the Nordic Breads stand in the Union Square Greenmarket, whose delicious, crowd-pleasing samples we took as inspiration for the following recipe.
Ingredients1/2 medium-size Poona kheera cucumber
Sea salt and pepper to taste
2 sandwich-size rounds of Finnish ruis (rye) bread
2 oz. butter
1/2 pound Aged Bloomsday cheese (at Cato Corner)
