Tuna Salad Bites
These tiny cucumber sandwiches are simple to put together and they are adorable. We recently made them for a friend’s bridal shower, and they looked fantastic on the table with all of the other goodies.
Four medium sized cucumbers, partially peeled, sliced
4 cans chunk light tuna in water, well drained
1 small jar diced pimentos, well drained
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. salt
1 c. mayonnaise
For the tuna salad, mix the well-drained tuna and pimento with the salt, pepper, and mayonnaise. Stir the mixture together well, until the tuna is broken up and the mixture is smooth. Chill for at least one hour before assembling your sandwiches.
The salt in the tuna will slowly soften the cucumbers, so this is a bite that you will want to assemble shortly before serving. Peel strips off of the cucumbers lengthwise after washing them; this gives them the appearance of being striped. Slice the cucumbers into approximately centimeter wide slices. Sandwich a small spoonful of the tuna between two layers of cucumber and secure with a toothpick. Enjoy!
