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.

Ingredients

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

Directions

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
