2) Peel and slice cucumbers, thinly and using a round cut.
3) Dry cucumbers by placing them on a paper towel lined cookie sheet and then cover them with paper towels. Press down on the paper towel to absorb the excess water from the cucumbers.
4) Take two slices of the crust less Italian white bread and spread the creamy dill mixture on each piece of bread.
5) Add 20 cucumbers slices to the one piece of the bread, laying the cucumbers on the creamy dill mixture. The cucumbers should be slightly layered.
6) Add the second slice of bread on top, creamy dill mixture facing down and pressed against the cucumbers.
7) Cut the sandwich into 4 squares using a sharp chef’s knife. Repeat for remaining sandwiches.


Roasted Garlic Aioli’l:
1) Take a garlic head and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt. Place the garlic head on a small cookie sheet and roast in an oven at 400-degrees until the outside is lightly brown.
2) Remove garlic from the oven; once cool, peel the garlic to get 6 gloves.
3) Crush the peeled garlic into a paste and add it to a medium bowl.
4) Add the yolk and beat until combined.
5) Drizzle the extra virgin olive oil very slowly so that it can be absorbed.
6) As the aioli’l thickens, stop adding the extra virgin olive oil and add in the lemon juice slowly – 1 tablespoon at a time.
7) Continue adding in the remaining extra virgin olive oil until gone.
8) Whisk in the salt and pepper to taste.
9) Set aside.
