These sandwiches were very simple. The chicken salad I made as I normally would with rotisserie chicken pieces and mayonnaise. I then added a bit of lemon juice and chopped strawberries to taste. I thought about adding a bit of sugar, but the strawberries were the perfect amount of sweet/sour to make the chicken salad delicious.
The cucumber rounds are simply that--I used a 3 inch cookie cutter on wheat bread, spread cream cheese on top with some cut up fresh mint from my garden, toped with a cucumber followed by half of a strawberry.
