I made these for a wedding reception this weekend and everyone raved over them! At the suggestion of a previous reviewer, I did as they suggested and didn't add the entire envelope of Italian dressing mix, only adding to suit my taste. Like you, I did score my English cuke, and I cut the rye bread in rounds, and added the dill to the top of each cuke slice. They were gone in a flash, and they wanted more, so next time I'll double the recipe, which by the way, was super easy. Thanks for sharing this delish little gem! 8/2/10 - Back again to say that this little appetizer is still a favorite with family and friends, except now I have to triple the recipe every time I make it, lol. Thanks again!
Quick, easy, nice presentation and great taste! I made these for friends on a football/tv afternoon and everyone like them -I liked the easy recipe! One note, I mixed 2 dashes of Tabasco rather than 1 dash and really didn't notice the "spice" from it at all, so if you like things spicier you might want to add a bit more after some taste tests.
Very easy and quick appetizer, with a nice zesty taste. I used toasted garlic bread, each slice cut in four and topped the cuke slice with half an olive. One we will be using again, thanks for posting. May 31/09 mmm very good appie and so easy. this time I used a thin savory cracker and followed through with the rest of the recipe, love the touch of tobasco!
