Spring is here and as eager as I am to shed the heavy sweaters of winter in favor of cute sundresses and flip flops I am even more eager to start eating “Spring”. I love seasonal fall and winter food but I am, like many of you I’m sure, ready to eat things that are light, fresh and colorful. I am anticipating with excitement sitting on my deck, on a perfect Spring night with friends and fun food.
When my friend Laura asked for a food contribution to her sweet daughter Violet’s school gala next weekend, these cucumber canapés immediately came to mind. They are crisp, fresh and beautiful. They scream Spring all wrapped up in a pretty one-bite package. And they are a terrific modern twist on some traditional Jewish favorites. What could be better?
