This convenient and colorful party classic from Linda Austin in Lake Hopatcong, New Jersey, can be made several days in advance. In fact, it actually tastes better if prepared ahead so all the fresh flavors can blend together. Best served at room temperature with a crusty loaf of toasted French bread or your favorite crackers.
Zucchini tends to spread—across bread, crackers and veggies—when this recipe is served at a reception, potluck or casual get-together. It makes enough to satisfy a crowd. —GaleLynn Peterson, Long Beach, California
Along with a refreshing beverage, I served these attractive hors d'oeuvres to guests at my Garden Party. The crisp cucumbers on these easy-to-fix finger sandwiches get their zip from being marinated for a short time.
