Expert Tips

Cucumbers contain a higher percentage of water, which translates to fewer calories for the same weight of food. That's good news for your waistline!

Four ingredients and three steps result in impressive Italian-inspired appetizers that are simply sensational!

“Provençal” refers to ingredients—such as tomatoes—that are common to the cuisine of Provence, a region in southeastern France.

Unwaxed English cucumbers have a sweet, delicate flavor and few or no seeds, so they’re a great choice for this appetizer.

Directions

  • 1 Make lines or indentations lengthwise down cucumber at 1/4-inch intervals, using vegetable peeler or tines of fork. Cut cucumber into 32 slices, 1/2 inch each. Place on paper towels to drain.
  • 2 Spread each slice with about 1 teaspoon tomato spread. Sprinkle each with about 1/2 teaspoon cheese.
  • 3 Serve immediately, or refrigerate up to 1 hour. Top each slice with basil leaf just before serving.
