"I have been making this for get togethers since it first appeared in the Taste of Home magazine years ago and it always gets rave reviews. Thanks for a great magazine and website!"

"I used cocktail rye bread slices, but everything else was the same. Absolutely delish!! This appetizer was a hit with everyone."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 9, 2010

"You say use a 2 1/2 inch cutter for the bread, yet the picture shows ONE cucumber slice covering the entire surface. A cucumber that big would not be delicious. I have not made this yet."
