This is such an addictive appetizer, they will disappear in a flash, and are so impressive looking. Can also be served for lunch or side dish. Simple to make and so tasty, hope you enjoy!

Attractive and delicious! And so quick to make: a great addition to anyone’s recipe collection. These would be such fantastic appetisers, and I can well imagine them being snaffled fast! I look forward to serving them that way in the future! On this occasion, however, I was making something for myself for a rather exotic solo dinner (!) so I halved the recipe and this became a fabulously simple-to-make and scrumptious dinner for one! I don’t care for gherkin, so I used very thinly sliced Lebanese cucumber. I used creamy Greek yoghurt, and I added one grind of black pepper, and ¼ teaspoon of lemon zest. When serving for everyday purposes, this would be equally delicious served in lettuce cups or on a bed of baby spinach leaves. Just wonderful! I did sneak just a small portion of the filling to my Burmese cat. For him this was yum-yum-yum food. Those with cats will know what I’m talking about: a feline expression of joy while eating! Thank you, sarahsmomi, for a fabulous recipe!
