Crab and Cucumber Canapés

These impressive little appetizers come together quickly, making them perfect for entertaining. Refreshing cucumber provides a nice contrast to the rich crabmeat, so these bites feel light and elegant. Use the freshest crabmeat you can find, and be sure to pick it over and remove any stray pieces of shell.
