Delight in the classic charm of this ham and cucumber tea sandwich.

Thinly sliced ham, paired with crisp cucumber, creates a delightful contrast of flavours and textures. Nestled between soft, fresh bread, it's a timeless favourite for afternoon tea or a light snack.


  • Rye bread, cut into preferred shape
  • Ricotta and basil pesto
  • Sliced ham
  • Cucumber
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Microgreens


  • Cut squares of rye bread using a cookie cutter as a guide to get them all the same size.
  • Combine the ricotta and basil together to make a tasty spread.
  • Spread or pipe onto the bread.
  • Cut strips of ham the same width as the bread (use the same cookie cutter).
  • Cut the cherry tomatoes in half through the middle.
  • Peel long strips of cucumber to create ribbons.
  • Dab the cucumber on a piece of paper towel.
  • Gently fold one strip of ham in a loose zigzag, do the same with one strip of cucumber, top with a cherry tomato half and then stick the skewer right through the centre.
  • Put it onto the bread and tease out the layers a little.
  • Top with some microgreens to finish it off.
