Mediterranean Cucumber Appetizers

I was craving a nice light summer snack the other night while I was reading and really wanted to munch on some of these cucumber hummus appetizers. Unfortunately, there was no hummus in the fridge or chickpeas in the cupboard and I was about to make some boring old popcorn, but then I spotted a tub of feta and these new Mediterranean inspired cucumber apps were born! I topped the crisp cucumbers with a creamy feta and pecorino romano cheese spread and then sprinkled on a healthy dose of chopped sun dried tomatoes and toasted pine nuts. Yum, these were very tasty and even fairly healthy little bites.

By the way, am I the only one who can never spell Mediterranean correctly? Iā€™m always so off that my spell check never even has any recommendations!

  1. Mmm this is the prefect light summer snack! I feel like I’m always snacking on cucumbers in the summer, but feta, sundried tomatoes, and pine nuts make them even better!

  2. This is the perfect snack. I always spell Mediterranean wrong first and then I have to talk myself through it … terra=earth. One t, 2 r’s.
