Place the sliced cucumber on two sheets of kitchen paper and blot gently.

Sprinkle lightly with salt and let the slices drain again.

Cut off the crusts of the bread and butter the slices properly.

In a small bowl, mix the cheese and dill well and set aside to chill.

Arrange the cucumber on the bread and season with salt and pepper.

Layer the ham on top of the cucumber.

Press down the bread and then cut the sandwiches into triangles.

Serve immediately.
