Stuffed Cucumber Bites

These stuffed cucumber bites are an easy cold appetizer or snack.  They make a tasty addition to a picnic or packed lunch too.

This is an old cucumber recipe that I have been making since I left University (only a few years old then, “ahem”).  My flatmate and I at the time were having a surge of salad recipes and this is one I made as part of the salad feast.

I remembered the recipe recently as was looking at my fridge for inspiration to make a light lunch and saw the usual block of cream cheese and cucumber.   Knowing that I had some walnuts in the cupboard, my brain library woke up, dusted off the archives and remembered the stuffed cucumbers I used to munch on.


This is such a simple appetiser recipe. I cut the cucmbers into slices, scoop out the seeds to stop any sogginess, and fill the cucumbers with a mixture of softened cream cheese, walnuts and herbs. They can be made ahead too. Just cover and store in the fridge until you are ready to eat them.

Since the Chief Taster hates cucumber with almost a vengeance, I got to eat these all to myself. They are light enough that if you do eat the lot in one go whilst laughing at your husband’s whimpering about the cucumber smell, you won’t be left with a full, heavy feeling of stomach shame.

The cucumbers that we have in Barbados are similar in appearance to those in the Middle East in that they are medium in length and fairly chunky.   Compared to the English cucumbers that are long in length and slimmer.  I prefer the little chunky ones for stuffing!

Although I cut my cucumbers in half you could cut them in thick slices and pipe or slather the cream cheese mixture over them.  Perhaps kick the spices up with a little bit of chilli in them too.
