Quick, easy and fresh, these cucumber bites are the perfect cold appetizer. A dill cream cheese mix is piped on top of cucumber slices and topped with juicy tomatoes.
- 2 cucumbers
- 12 cherry or grape tomatoes
- 4 ounces cream cheese softened
- 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
- 3 tablespoons Ranch dressing
- 1 tablespoon fresh dill minced fine
- ¼ teaspoon garlic salt
- ¼ teaspoon Italian seasoning
- Black pepper for garnish
Wash, peel and slice the cucumbers into half-inch slices discarding the ends.
Remove a little of the center of the cucumber with a small measuring spoon making a divot in the cucumber.
Mix together the cream cheese, mayonnaise and ranch dressing until smooth and creamy.
Add dill, garlic, and Italian seasoning and mix until combined.
Place the filling into a piping bag with a star tip and pipe about 1 tablespoon of filling onto each cucumber.
Slice the tomatoes in half and place a piece onto each cucumber filling.
Sprinkle with black pepper and serve.
TIP: A small melon baller would also work to make the divots in the center of the cucumbers.
TIP: Make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature so that it blends well with the rest of the ingredients and doesn't leave lumps.
TIP: No piping or pastry bag? Fill a sandwich baggie and clip the corner off.
