Reviews for Cucumber Canapes
"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."
"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."
