Cream Cheese Cucumbers
This is a recipe I came up with when I decided (at the last minute) that I needed something savoury to serve for some friends who were popping over for morning tea. I was so happy with the result - they look gorgeous, taste great and are a perfect, healthy little addition to the table.
1 cucumber (whichever variety you have in the fridge is fine!)
125g cream cheese
Squeeze of lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon paprika
fresh chives, to serve
Combine cream cheese, lemon juice and paprika in a small bowl. Transfer to a piping bag with a large star tip.
Cut cucumber into thick rounds. Pipe a rosette of cream cheese mixture onto each piece of cucumber.
Top each with two pieces of chopped chives.
