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. —Sara Laker Loda, Illinois

"These are okay. Next time I won't marinate the cucumber slices because I personally think these appetizers would be better with the simple, fresh taste of cucumber instead of vinegar. The olives give off a marinated, vinegary taste of their own, plus you have the taste of the Worcestershire sauce in the spread. So I don't think it's really necessary to add vinegar to the cukes. Although good to snack on, these remind me of something you'd find in one of those old cookbooks from the 50's. Still a nice addition to a picnic spread or as a holiday appetizer."
