CUCUMBER BITES WITH HERBED CREAM CHEESE & TOMATO

Ingredients:

2 English cucumbers, sliced into 1/2 inch discs

1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, whole or halved

Herb spread (readily available or use the recipe below)

For the Herb Spread:

16 ounces cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup fresh Parmesan, finely grated

1/4 cup sour cream

1/4 cup fresh parsley, minced

2 garlic cloves, finely minced

1 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

2 teaspoons dill, chopped

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions:

For the homemade herb spread, whisk together all ingredients in a bowl until creamy and smooth.

Use a melon baller to scoop out a small hollow in each cucumber slice.

Generously apply or pipe the herbed spread onto each cucumber disc.

Crown each cucumber bite with a cherry tomato, either whole or halved. Garnish with a petite parsley leaf for an added touch of elegance.

Chill the bites in the refrigerator until you’re ready to dazzle your guests.

Serve and enjoy the symphony of Mediterranean flavors in every bite.

Enjoy!
