Gluten Free Appetizers: Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus and Cucumber Bites

I personally enjoy making these for the Christmas holidays as they decorate the table with festive colors and stimulate the taste buds with an abundance of flavor.

These recipes are two fan favorite appetizers among my family and friends. No baking required and the same ingredients used for both except for the veggies.
