Finger food makes every buffet and brunch that much more appealing. We have lots of great ideas.

Breakfast or buffet: these quick-cooked pieces of tuna with cucumber are a real eye-catcher and wonderfully refreshing.

Ingredients for 20 pieces:

  • 1 can of tuna, in its own juice
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 stick of celery with some greens
  • 4 tablespoons of sour cream
  • 2 drops of lemon juice
  • salt
  • Black pepper from the mill
  • 2 cucumbers

Per serving:

  • 14 calories
  • 0.7 grams of fat
  • 1 gram of carbohydrates
  • 0.5 grams of protein

And here’s how it’s done:

  1. Drain the tuna in a colander and dry well.
  2. Wash the pepper, dry it, cut it in half and remove the seeds. Then cut into very small cubes of the same size.
  3. Clean, wash and dry the celery stalks. Chop a few leaves very finely. Cut the stick itself, like the pepper, into very small cubes of the same size.
  4. Now place the sour cream, paprika, celery and tuna in a bowl and mix well. Season to taste with lemon, salt and pepper.
  5. Cut off the ends of the cucumbers, peel the cucumbers and cut them into slices about 1 cm thick.
  6. Now spread the sour cream mixture from the tuna on a slice of cucumber and cover with the second slice of cucumber. Sprinkle some of the pieces with fresh pepper. But not everyone, because not everyone likes spicy.
  7. Place on a decorative plate and serve with pretty napkins.

Tuna bites with cucumber can be well prepared. They really attract attention at every buffet. Also, a light meal between roasts and meatballs is a welcome change – like this creamy tuna pasta with cream cheese, which is great with fresh bread or crackers. Melon salad with couscous, beet tzatziki and chicken and shrimp balls are also quite creative. These recipes will appeal to every guest. A classic for decades, of course, was potato salad – with mayonnaise or yogurt. The main thing is that it is homemade, not bought. That’s not how it works.
