Now that it’s the New Year, I decided to bring something a little lighter! These cucumber boats are packed with flavor and would be a great appetizer or anytime snack!

You can make them with low fat cream cheese as well, so there are not as many calories!

I used a piping bag to get the cream cheese as pretty as possible. But, you don’t have to worry about that. Stuff them anyway you like!

Dill Cream Cheese Cucumber Boats

Prep Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour
Servings 14 pieces
Author Dana at ThisSillyGirlsLife.com

Ingredients

  • 7 mini cucumbers
  • 12 oz cream cheese room temp
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh dill chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh flat leaf parsley chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Wash cucumbers and slice in half length wise. Using a small melon baller, scoop out the seeds and discard. Place cucumbers cut side down on paper towels for about an hour to let the excess water run out.
  2. Place the cream cheese and remaining ingredients in a microwave safe bowl and mix to combine. Microwave for 10 seconds, just to loosen up the cheese slightly. If piping, place in a piping bag with a large star tip and pipe cream cheese into cucumbers.
  3. If you are just filling the cucumber with the cheese with a knife, then you do not need to microwave the cheese at all. Serve and enjoy!
