Recipe Wednesday: Cucumber Bites [A Quick Snack]

This Recipe Wednesday features a snack dish that is both healthy & super quick to whip up for guests...or yourself.

Ingredients

+ Cucumbers
[sliced about an 1in or 1.5in]

+ One block of fat-free cream cheese

+ Lemon juice

+ Pepper & Sea Salt

+ Minced garlic

+ Thyme

+ Rosemary 

+ Parsley 

+ Basil

+ Oregano 

+ Paprika
[put to the side until done making the cucumber bites]

What To Do...

+ Place sliced cucumbers on a tray and set aside

+ Allow cream cheese to come to room temperature - or at least be able to tell that it's soft enough to use a hand mixer 

+ Add in some lemon juice, and garlic - mix it in well

+ Then add in all of your herbs and the salt & pepper - start off small and increasingly add more of whatever you need.

+ I put about a spoonful amount of the cream cheese onto each slice of cucumber - you'll notice the cream cheese sliding around on the cucumber - after putting the completed sliced in the fridge for a few hours the cream cheese will stick more to the cucumber 

+ Sprinkle paprika over the completed cucumbers bites & you're done!
