Summer time is great for eating fast fresh foods, but at times you can get stuck in a rut or maybe to hot to eat. That was me I wanted to make my chilled cucumber soup (check out previous blog post for the recipe) but my buttermilk went past a few days on the best by date and I am not one to really venture past that date when it comes to dairy.
I had a lot of cucumbers and still wanted something cool/fresh but still light so I came up with this cucumber spread and thought I would share. The list of ingredients are short, not pricy and this is something you can do ahead of time. Have for lunch or a light dinner like I did.
Yes, a lot of people have cucumber sandwiches and I love to try all sorts of variations too so this falls in with that.
Cucumber Spread Recipe:
2 small or 1 medium cucumber pealed and diced
12 ounce soft cream cheese (I didn’t use the full 12oz more like 8oz but that’s up to you)
Fresh Dill and Chives to taste
Salt and Pepper to taste
Add cream cheese to diced cucumber then dice or cut dill and chives adding the amount per your taste then salt and pepper and yes that’s it!
I know it sounds like its not really anything but its great and you should really give it a go. You can use on your favorite bread or bagel. Have the spread plane or you may also want to add sliced tomato an avocado or really any toping that sounds good.
