Dilly Cucumber Bites

These fresh Dilly Cucumber Bites make a great healthy appetizer. Cucumber slices are topped with a fresh dill cream cheese and yogurt mixture, and finished with a juicy cherry tomato.

Parties and get-togethers are a great excuse to make some of my favorite more indulgent treats, like brownies and cookies and cheesy dips. But this past month I had so many occasions to make snacks that I actually got a little sick of eating junk. Can you believe it?

Dill and cucumber go together like PB&J (hello, dill pickles), so I thought a dilly cream cheese or yogurt would be perfect for topping some cukes. I ended up using a little of each, plus some ranch dressing mix for extra flavor.

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:


  • Step 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.

  • Step 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.

  • Step 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).

  • Step 4

Pipe the cheese mixture onto the cucumber rounds, then top with a cherry tomato half!
