1/4 cup finely chopped bottled roasted red bell peppers
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
3 tablespoons drained capers
2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced
32 (1/4-inch-thick) English cucumber slices (about 1 cucumber)
How to Make It
Combine first 12 ingredients; toss gently. Spoon 1 rounded tablespoon rice mixture onto each cucumber slice.
A handheld grater is an ideal kitchen tool when you need to create finely grated bits that distribute flavor throughout a dish. Use it to grate the rind from fresh citrus or hard cheese, such as the well-aged Asiago and lemon we used in this recipe.
