Cucumber Hummus Bites

Do you ever get invited to a BBQ (or something like that) and not know what to bring?  
You want to bring something healthy, but you don't want it to go untouched by guests?  
Maybe you are trying to lose a few and desperately need something at the party that you can eat without overindulging?
Or maybe you simply prefer some healthier items to balance out your typical burger fare?
What ever it may be, these little cucumber appetizer bites are the thing to do.  I'm telling ya, they are the next big thing at your family get-togethers!  
They look like you spent all day making them, when actually it took about 10 minutes.
They are perfect finger food...and who doesn't like finger food?
Look at these Beaut's:

To start, prepare some of my delicious homemade hummus!  Or if you're in a rush, buy some from the super market.  If you haven't made your own before, give it a whirl.  It's easy and you can tweak it to your taste preference. 

Then, Peel an english cucumber like SO:

Slice cucumber into 1-inch rounds.

Spoon hummus into plastic bag and snip off one of the bottom corners for a make-shift pastry bag.

Squeeze hummus through "pastry bag" on top of cuke rounds, sprinkle with sesame seeds (use black sesame seeds for a pretty presentation) and course sea salt.

Serve to your friends for a healthy, pretty and fun appetizer or side dish.  Enjoy!


  1. Healthy, simple and delicious! Great snack!

  2. What a great idea--super easy and healthy besides! I have a feeling I may end up eating a whole cucumber's worth of these for dinner when it gets really hot out...

  3. I could see myself eating a whole cuke's worth, too. Guilt Free!
