I am in love with these little appetizers. They’re super classy and healthy, too! I made them to include on a graze table for Kendall’s birthday, and they were the perfect addition. Just look at how cute they are!!
I’m always trying to find healthy snack options that are different than a handful of fruit or nuts, and these cucumbers with whipped avocado & goat cheese topped with sun-dried tomatoes definitely fit that category! They’re extremely simple to make, too, so it’s a win-win for everybody.
2 ounces fresh goat cheese
1 cup of avocado (I use a container of already peeled, fresh avocado)
small dash of tabasco sauce
1 tbsp lemon juice
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 medium English cucumbers, cut into 1 1/2 inch slices
sundried tomatoes, chopped
Fresh parsley for garnish
In a medium-size bowl mash avocado and goat cheese with a fork until well combined. Then, using a hand mixer, whip mixture until no large chunks of avocado or goat cheese are visible.
Add a dash of tabasco sauce, lemon juice and salt. Mix until well combined.
Slice cucumber slices about 1 1/2 inches in thickness.
Pipe mixture onto cucumber slices.
Garnish with small piece of chopped sun-dried tomato and fresh parsley.
