Appetizers & Drinks
Makes about 48 bites
8 Sunset® Mini Cucumbers
3 oz cream cheese, softened
5 oz goat cheese (fresh chevre), softened
1/2 tsp curry powder
pinch of salt
1/4 cup chopped pistachios, lightly toasted
1/4 cup finely minced dried apricots
Garnish: chopped pistachios and dried cranberries
Cut the ends off the cucumbers. Then cut each cucumber into 1” slices (6 pieces per cucumber). You should end up with about 48 slices. Using a small melon-baller scoop center of cucumber bite 3/4 of the way down, leaving a “bottom” intact. Set aside.
In a small bowl mash the cream cheese, goat cheese, curry powder and salt together with a fork until smooth and combined. Then mix in pistachios and apricots well.
Transfer cream cheese mixture into a piping bag with a plain round tip. Pipe about 1 teaspoon cream cheese mixture into each cucumber bite. Sprinkle with pistachios and dried cranberries before serving.
