Oooh! This recipe for English Cucumber Canapés sounds so fancy. The e has an accent and they aren’t just regular cucumbers, they are English cucumbers.
A canapé is a type of hors d’œuvre, a small, prepared and usually decorative food, held in the fingers and often eaten in one bite.
Lift up your nose where the air is better.

This stunning, but simple appetizer has only 2 ingredients and takes less than 10 minutes to put together.
Ingredient 1: English cucumbers large or mini
Ingredient 2: Vegan Thousand Island Dressing
Take about 3 mini cucumbers and make a thin slice to remove the ends. Then cut into about 1 inch chunks. I got about 14 pieces to work with.
Make a little well in the cucumber pieces using a very small spoon/teaspoon/avocado tool (as pictured above). This will remove some of the seed area and leave a nice little hollow to deposit something delicious. Like our vegan thousand island dressing.
Use a teaspoon or half a teaspoon measurement and fill each little hollow with dressing and serve.
Serve with a garnish of carrots, greens, or a sprinkle of chives.
They are the perfect little bite-sized salads. Crunchy and hydrating.
Hummus would be a great filling too! Turn it into a lunch and serve with 1/4-1/2 cup of rice.
Eat up! xx
