Cucumber and Hummus

These little nibbles are not only tasty but healthy.  With only two ingredients it may be the quickest snack or appetizer you put together.  I will leave measurements out of this one because the quantity will change depending on how you’re serving this as a snack (i.e. for one or as an appetizer for a crowd). 

 

Ingredients:

– Hummus

– Cucumbers

– Salt (optional)

 

Directions:

Wash your cucumber and with a vegetable peeler remove a section of skin leaving some on.  Pat the slices dry and slice the cucumber into your preferred thickness.  If you prefer to season your cucumber slices, sprinkle with a little salt. Top each slice of cucumber with a dollop your favorite hummus.  You’ll use about ½ tbsp. on each slice. Choose your favorite hummus, or take it a step further and make it from scratch!

Alternative:

Use English cucumbers and slice them into 1” pieces, remove the seeds with a melon baller and fill each cucumber cup with the hummus.  You can also use hummus as a dip for a variety of veggies, endive, bell peppers, carrots, broccoli, celery, the list goes on and on.  Don’t be afraid to display hummus at your next event!
