I must be in a cucumber state of mind.
A few days ago I blogged about a crowd-pleasing cucumber salad with yogurt-dill sauce and here I am… chattering on about cucumbers. Again.
Cucumbers are like pets. They are there for you when you need a pick-me-up and they are loyally steadfast companions when you need them most.
Event: Drop-in guests
Pantry check: Hothouse, slicing or everyday Walmart bin-dump cucumbers
Refrigerator check: Hummus
Plating check: black sesame seeds or a drop of basil pesto or a bit of sun-dried tomato
Process check: Peel cucumbers to remove skins. Slice into bite sized pieces. Spoon cute little dollop of hummus on top. Top with sesame seeds, pesto, or sun-dried tomato
Smugness check: Yeah, just a little something you “whipped up.” You’re so good.
I’d love to hear about ways you quickly whip up your own unexpected/expected appetizers! Leave a comment or two!
