Flashing back to my youth, nothing brought me more joy than finding a mini turkey and cheese baguette inside my lunchbox. They were petite and dainty and oh-so-satisfying, with just the right ratio of crunchy bread to light spread and savory fillings.
But along the way, both bread products and baguettes left my life. And while I’ve made do with matzoh and rice cracker stand-ins, I missed the shape, taste, and texture of my original sandwich. That is, until I realized the unassuming cucumber could save the day. Because let it be heard here first, cucumbers are the new baguette. No baking required.
