In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, mint and salt and stir to combine.

Lay out 6 slices of bread and spread each with a heaping tablespoon of mayonnaise mixture. Layer each piece of bread with about 9 slices of cucumber. Divide watercress between 6 slices and top with remaining 6 slices of bread.
