I’ve made this simple appetizer or canape so many times, that I can’t believe I haven’t shared it yet. Whenever you throw a party, this is a great recipe to make a day or so ahead and slice the day of.

Green chutney is made with a blend of Coriander, Chilies and spices. Where I’m from, coconuts are a huge part of the staple diet and we add coconut to our chutneys which I find gives this chutney flavor and body!
