Game Day Cucumber Party Ryes

Family Favorites


Need a quick, inexpensive appetizer for game day or a special event? You can literally make up tons of these in a matter of a few minutes and yet they are one of the items that go first. Refrigerate assembled appetizers for a few hours, if possible, to allow flavors in spread to blend.

I usually add a little additional dill weed and freshly cracked pepper to the original recipe, but it's up to you.
