Strawberry and Cucumber Sandwiches

I found this recipe on the Whole Foods website. The ingredients are unusual for a sandwich and I think I'll try making them for our upcoming family trip to Portola next month.
Serves 4
When summer fruits are at their sweetest, peaches make a worthy substitution for the strawberries in this recipe.
8 large strawberries 4 ounces (8 tablespoons) Neufchâtel, softened 1 tablespoon chopped mint 1 teaspoon lemon zest Salt and pepper to taste 1/2 seedless cucumber, thinly sliced 1 bunch watercress, long stems trimmed 8 slices whole wheat sandwich bread
Chop 4 of the strawberries and slice the remaining 4. In a large bowl, mash chopped strawberries with a fork. Add Neufchâtel, mint, zest, salt and pepper and mix until well combined. Spread strawberry mixture evenly between slices of bread then arrange cucumbers, sliced berries and watercress over half of the slices. Top with remaining slices to form sandwiches then halve each and serve.
