Ukrainian Kanapky – Open Face Sandwiches

These open-face sandwiches, which we call “Kanapky”, better known to my children as “church sandwiches” (since they always enjoyed them at a church bake sale), are very presentable on a party table, and extremely tasty.

You can use the full slice of bread, for a filling kanapka, but for parties I prefer to cut each slice of bread in half, or even into thirds as for tea party kind of appetizers.  Then you use the other ingredients in proportion to your bread size.

They are so delicious…almost addictive… and you will not just have one…I assure you of that.

Green Goddess Quinoa Salad – Recipe
