Herbed Cucumber Bites

There is nothing more springy than fresh herbs. An open window and a beautiful breeze wafting through the herbs you may have on your window sill smell fresh and bright. Creamy herb dip on top of cucumber bites will really hit the spot.


1 cucumber, cut into slices
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
Zest of half a lemon
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 to 4 basil leaves, chopped roughly
Salt and pepper to taste


In a bowl, combine cream cheese, lemon zest, garlic, basil leaves and salt and pepper until thoroughly mixed. Transfer to a piping bag fitted with a star tip. Lay out the cucumber slices on a serving tray. Pipe dollops of cream cheese mixture onto the cucumber slices. Serve cold.

Makes approximately 15 bites
