These Herbed Cucumber Bites are a go to appetizer for hosting for me. Totally affordable, pleasing to the eye, and a wicked crowd pleaser! They’re cheesy, flavorful and the lemon adds a wonderful brightness.
Herbed Cucumber Bites
Serves a crowd, depending on size of cucumber
- 1 large cucumber, slice
- 1 package of herbed cheese such as Boursin or Alouette
- 1-2 tbsp of heavy cream
- 1/2 lemon, zested and juiced
- Freshly chopped dill, chives, or parsley
- Kosher salt and freshly cracked pepper
Place sliced cucumber on a platter.
In a bowl, combine the cheese, cream, lemon juice, zest, and herbs and whip until smooth and creamy. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Prepare a piping bag with a large tip, such as Wilton #12, #21, or #32. Place cheese filling in bag and place a swirl on each cucumber slice. Chill until ready to serve and enjoy!
