We needed a light appetizer for a potluck and wanted something fresh for spring. So we found these very simple cucumber bites which are a delicious healthier break from the typical indulgent hors d’oeuvres. Perfect for placing on some great looking serveware.

INGREDIENTS
  • 4 large English cucumbers
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes
  • 1 (8 oz) block cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 small (5.3 oz) container plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 tbsp fresh dill, minced
  • 1 tbsp powdered Ranch dressing mix (such as Hidden Valley)
 INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Slice cucumbers into rounds, about ½-inch thick. You can leave the skin on, peel them, or partially peel them for a striped look. Slice grape tomatoes in half (or quarters, if large) and set aside.
  2. In a bowl, combine cream cheese, Greek yogurt, dill and Ranch dressing powder. Mix thoroughly. You can use an electric mixer, but you can also do this by hand.
  3. Transfer the cheese mixture to a piping bag (if you don’t have one, you can use a large Ziplock bag with a corner snipped off).
  4. Pipe the cheese mixture onto the cucumber rounds, then top with a cherry tomato half!

    Wow, this recipe is seems cool and classy! It really sounds and looks lovely, I’m going to try it for sure for a large gathering at my place as one of the finger foods. Except, I’m thinking of using a piece of sweet red pepper instead of the tomato – only because that would be less watery but crisp. Thanks so much for sharing!

    I’m making it for the first time. 3 tbsp of dill seems like a lot of dill. Is this correct?

    I did not have Greek yogurt, so used sour cream instead, and it was delicious. Also, another time, I tried putting smoked salmon on top instead of the tomatoes and that was wonderful as well! Thanks for a great recipe. I am using it frequently.

    Thank you! This is delicious! I made it exactly the way the recipe said. I will definitely use other toppings besides the tomato next time for a variety.
