Easy and Refreshing Garden Appetizer



We recently celebrated our little ones third birthday by having a backyard party for him. I love entertaining outside and making healthy food to match the setting so I came up with this easy garden appetizer after browsing a few recipes and altering them to fit what I was looking for. It only took a short amount of time to make this light and healthy snack.

Ingredients:
  • 3 cucumbers
  • 1 pint of cherry tomatoes
  • 15 ounces of softened cream cheese
  • 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon of  basil
  • 1 tablespoon of oregano
  •  salt, pepper and garlic to taste
Directions:
  • Wash and cut your cucumbers to 1/4 inch thick slices
  • Wash and cut your tomatoes in half
  • Blend parmesan, cream cheese, mayo, herbs and seasonings in a food processor
  • Fill a piping bag (or plastic sandwich bag with the corner cut off) with your mixture and swirl a dollop on each cucumber slice
  • Top each cucumber with a half slice of tomato.  



Enjoy!
