Festive Cucumber Bites 🎄🎁
I’m sharing a bunch of cute food ideas for your holiday table this week, so stay tuned to our CFC channel!😊
These Cucumber Bites are so FUN to make with the kids.
I like to call these types of projects a “food craft” because they’re really fun to make together as a family!
Besides being really simple, they’re actually quite tasty with a perfect blend of seasonings & herbs.
➡️ Note: My favorite brand of cream cheese is pasture-raised “Organic Valley”.
Makes about 12 servings
- 2 large English cucumbers
- 8 oz grape or cherry tomatoes
- 1 (8 oz) organic cream cheese, at room temperature
- 1 small (5.3 oz) container plain Greek yogurt
- 3 Tbsps fresh dill, minced
- 2 Tbsps chives, finely chopped
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp celery salt
- a tiny pinch of sea salt and pepper
In a large mixing bowl, add your cream cheese, yogurt, dill, chives and seasonings. Stir very well to combine.
Add this mixture to a piping bag. Alternatively, you can use a Ziplock type bag with a tiny corner snipped off.
Refrigerate your cream cheese mixture until ready to use.
Just before serving, slice your cucumbers into ½-inch thick rounds.
Slice the tomatoes in half.
Arrange your cucumber slices on a large platter.
Pipe a swirl of cheese mixture onto each cucumber round. Top with a cherry tomato half, cut side down, as shown.
Garnish with freshly ground black pepper.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
