Are you ready for the easiest, no cooking required appetizer of all time???
Here you have it friends! 3 simple ingredients is all you need and doesn't it look pretty too?
I didn't specify the cheese because it is really your choice here. A friend of mine makes homemade goat cheese and I was able to use it for this recipe. Since it was without seasonings I added my own fresh herbs as well as some minced garlic and salt.
You could certainly buy already flavored cheese to spread on these slices of cucumber because really anything will work here. Feta is another great option or Laughing Cow light cream cheese which is flavored is also terrific!
The BEST part about this recipe is I didn't have to clean a fresh pomegranate! I found these little gems at Trader Joe's and was so happy!
The slight sweetness with the cheese is divine! This recipe takes as little as 10 minutes!
Whatever you do, don't leave your camera in the kitchen or the hubby will catch you in the most unflattering way munching! 🙂
No nutrition info here for you since it can simply be figured out with the cheese you use.But now you have a very simple but delicious and pretty appetizer to serve at any holiday with very little consumption of time on your end. I like that, don't you? 😉
Pomegranate Cheese Cucumber Bites
- 1 English cucumber, sliced
- ½ cup goat cheese, feta or cream cheese
- ½ cup pomegranate seeds
- optional: fresh parsley, basil chopped, fresh minced garlic, salt
Place the sliced cucumber onto a serving dish. Add 1 tablespoon of cheese to each slice. Sprinkle with pomegranate seeds. Keep chilled until ready to serve.
I was having a super duper craving to bake, and to bake some really yummy but unhealthy muffins! So, I started clicking around on your site, and found this recipe, which I had the cheese and cucumber for, but not the pomegranate seeds. Tried them with dried cranberries, and sliced fresh strawberries! Used both herb goat cheese, and Laughing Cow, basic Swiss (which luckily doesn't taste like Swiss). This is delicious! The cranberries were not flavorful enough, I thought, but the strawberries, well, that was divine! I was full and happy after just 6 of these, which was so very healthy- and yummy! I have pinned many of your recipes today, and sent your link to a friend. Thanks so much for this blog! And, in the picture above- you are VERY pretty, my friend! What a nice complexion you have!
Thanks so much Nancy!
