  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 24 thin English cucumber slices
  • 1/2 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon lower-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons grated peeled fresh ginger
