Cuke and Cream Canapés

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 398
Yield: 36 pieces


2 large cucumbers
1 salt and pepper to taste
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2/3 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 teaspoons dried parsley
2 green onions, chopped
1 dash of Tabasco
1/2 cup finely minced red bell pepper


Peel and cut cucumbers into slices; salt and pepper to taste. In a food processor or blender, process all remaining ingredients except crackers and red peppers until finely mixed. Spoon a small amount of mixture onto each cracker; add a cucumber slice, then add a dollop of mixture on top. Place on a serving platter, garnish with minced red pepper, and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Editor's Extra: This sauce is delicious as a dip with crackers. Or dip the cucumber slices in it!

Fun Fact: Cutting a corner tip off a zipper bag works well for piping soft fillings onto canapés. It’s handy for decorating a plate with a sauce, too, and also for decorating with frosting.
