      These were good but we found they needed a little extra kick - we added more hot sauce, some lemon, and more pepper. Also think I should've drained the cucumber cups for a bit. We also had some garden tomatoes, and the filling was good in them! Made for ZWT 8.

      Nice and cooling on a hot day. I omitted the hot sauce, and the taste was refreshing, but mild. I suspect that you could use worchester sauce instead, if you wanted. The presentation is very elegant.
