    Every once in a while, I miss crackers and it’s most evident when it comes time for parties or get-togethers. It always seems cheese and crackers and different variations of it are more than plentiful on plates and platters, circulating around and tempting me.

    These tasty bites use cucumber as the crunchy (cracker-like?) component upon which to pile the rest of the ingredients. In any case, I’m not the brain child behind these (that would be Z), but they’ve gone through a bit of an evolution in the past few weeks and have ended up as a virtual salad in one bite.

    Z really likes his with goat’s cheese, but if that’s not your thing, I used avocado instead. For a variation, try a toothpick through the top to hold it all together with an olive stuck on top.

    Cucumber Tomato Bites Recipe

    Total Time
    Serves 16. 1

    Ingredients

    • English (seedless) cucumber
    • 8 cherry tomatoes
    • 1/4 a white or purple onion
    • 1/4 a ripe avocado
    • 1/2 a lemon
    • 2 oz (~60 g) soft or hard goat’s cheese, optional
    • Sea salt and pepper

    Directions

    1. Slice the cucumber into rounds, about ⅛” thick. You can use a piece as a top and a bottom or just as a base. If using a slice for a top, cut out the middle from those pieces so it will sit on top of the tomato without falling off. Season the cucumber slices with a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Squeeze the lemon juice onto the slices.
    2. Next, spread the goat’s cheese on the bottom cucumber slice. If you aren’t using the cheese, add sliced avocado instead.
    3. Then, slice thin pieces of onion and add a couple on top of the avocado (or cheese). Raw onion is usually overpowering for me, so I added just a little to give a bit more flavor.
    4. Next, slice the tomatoes in half and add it to the stack.
    5. Top with another piece of cucumber (or not…after all, it’s your show!). Alternatively, stick a toothpick into the stack and top with an olive.

    1. I am lazy, so I just dice it all up and eat it like a salad or pico de gio. Without the cheese it is whole 30 compliant. Yum!
