Healthy Cucumber Appetizer Bites


Healthy Cucumber Appetizer Bites ~ are super easy bite-size appetizer made with cucumber hummus spread on cucumber rounds, topped with dill and a caper.  With 4 ingredients and only 5 minutes to prep, even if you have no confidence in the kitchen, you can pull this appetizer together and impress your guests. Plus, cucumber appetizer can be made hours before your guests arrive.  A win-win, even for non-cooks!


Hello friends, this is a simple appetizer I'm presenting today.  There is no real recipe here to speak of, only an idea for an easy and elegant way to whip up a healthy bite-size appetizer without a lot of fuss.

A friend of mine called and asked me if I could give her an idea for St. Patrick's Day pot-luck dinner for a school event she was attending.  How about bringing a green colored appetizer to the event?


I mentioned she needed to get to the store and pick up a few things.  One English cucumber, some dill (dried or fresh), a container of already-made cucumber hummus and a small jar of capers. Then slice the cucumber into 1/4-inch thick slices, add a small dollop of cucumber hummus on top and garnish with a sprinkle of dill and one caper.

Luckily, local grocery stores now sell different flavored hummus' making it very convenient. The creamy texture from the cucumber hummus make for an extra delicious flavor as the.spread.  You might be tempted to choose other flavored hummus, I won't mind.

Bite-size appetizers like these are always a hit and delicious to serve for dinner guests or at a party. Simple and tasty! Plus, they're gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan!


Are you attending the St. Patrick's Day parade? .. or maybe attending a friends party to celebrate the holiday?  Whichever you decide to do, make it a great day!  Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Cheers!
