Cucumber Shrimp Appetizers

When my friend's husband needed lower-fat snacks, she served him this fresh-tasting shrimp spread. Cucumber slices are a fun and healthy alternative to crackers. —Patricia Kile, Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania

    These are delicious! They were a huge hit at a recent party. I used frozen shrimp that I cooked and cut up. I never use canned shrimp. I completely dried the pineapple and used less than recommended. I love the idea of the cucumber slices instead of the usual crackers or breads.

    The tiny shrimp had no taste of shrimp. One only tasted the pineapple. I had a guest and was very disappointed with the results.

    I loved the lower carb idea of using cucumber slices. I did think the pineapple was not something that we would like to pair shrimp with, and used fresh steamed shrimp that I just cut up. The rest was a good combo.

    I thought the canned shrimp less than tasty. However had two requests for the recipe and that got good reviews from others.

    Cool, light and refreshing. Loved it as is.

    Very good; quick and easy. Just drain the pineapple really well and pat dry to avoid a soupy topping.

    This is so quick and easy to make and it tastes delicious. It is definitely on my go to appetizer list. Used larger shrimp and just cut them up. No need to buy smaller shrimp special for this.

    It was really tasty and refreshing. I used frozen salad shrimp which is much cheaper than canned shrimp and it worked just fine.

    If I made this again I would only use half of the amount of pineapple, we thought it was too sweet.
