Cucumber and Ham Spread

Question of all questions: What to eat today?

If it’s too heavy and greasy, I’ll feel sick later and hate myself probably after all that delicious grease, if it’s “healthy” it’s not really tasty. Luckily, with right ingredients it can be all: tasty, healthy and light. One of my favorite things to snack on during that mid time between lunch and dinner, where I get cravings for most ridiculous things is

Cucumber and Ham Spread

Making these delicious spread is the easiest thing and don’t need to be an expert in the kitchen. Just follow these steps.


1 medium cucumber,
Peeled and fine grated 1 small onion,
8 oz. pkg. softened cream cheese or sour cream
3 tbsp. real mayonnaise
¼ lb of your favorite ham – grated (I use Black Forest Ham)
Salt and pepper to taste
Few slices of your favorite bread.

Before mixing anything, make sure all the juice is removed from the cucumber and onion after you have grated them since both veggies are full of juice when grated. You can easily squeeze it with a paper towel or putting in a mug and squeezing it with hand.
In a medium bowl using electric mixer, whip the cream cheese or sour cream until it’s fluffy. Add the cucumber, onion, ham and mayonnaise. Taste the cucumber mixture and add salt and pepper as needed. Stir well with a spoon to combine. Spread the mixture on warmed up bread. Top each sandwich with another bread slice. Cut each sandwich into four pieces. If you take the crust out, grab cookie cutter and make your own shape with these delicious sandwiches.
