Why I love Cucumber Bites?

  • This cucumber bites recipe is a great way to make vegetarian hors d’oeuvres.
  • It’s a cool, light snack that can make when you have company.
  • Crudité platters are fine for casual get-togethers, but this goes one step up.
  • The red and green coloring makes them great for Christmas parties. 

What type of cucumber is best to use for this snack?

I would suggest using English Cucumbers for Cucumber Bites. They are longer than a regular cucumber, and have a thinner skin.

What type of toppings are suggested?

There are tons of choices for that. You could use Cream cheese with Salmon, you could use Ranch Dressing, Hummus with Red Pepper, or Guacamole and diced Red Onion. Those are just a few ideas. Let your mind run and try a variety of different toppings.

Do I need to peel the Cucumber?

You can make these snacks visually attractive by only peeling sections of the Cucumber. Such as thin strips down the length of the cucumber. You could also sprinkle a light dusting of Paprika on the cucumber.

How long can I store these in the refrigerator?

You can place the cucumber bites in an airtight container and then into the refrigerator for up to two days. I do not suggest freezing the cucumbers at all.

Can I make these Cucumber Bites in advance?

You could, however, it is suggested that you do NOT assemble until just before serving. A few hours in advance would be okay, but I do not advise longer than that.
