Appetizers - Cucumber n Cream

Appetizers served at dinners is really enjoyed by people. I mean who does'nt love the complimentary bread or crackers in a fancy restaurant. It sets the mood for the dinner. It need not to be lavish or complicated. Simple appetizer with no need of plates or napkins are often the best. They are pretty to look at too.

In the last dinner party at my home, I prepared some super easy appetizers and guess what, completely crowd pleasing. They can be prepared in a jiffy. Apologies for not so good picture but I promise, next time I make, I will update this post and that will be pretty soon.
