Ingredients

  • 1 cucumber medium
  • 1/4 cup basil leaves
  • 4 oz cram cheese
  • 2 sun dried tomatoes cut into small pieces for the topping

Instructions

  • Slice the ends off the cucumber and peel the skin off in stripes.
  • Cut the cucumber into half inch slices.
  • Use a small spoon to scrape the seeds from each cucumber half. This will leave the space needed for the cream cheese filling.
  • In a food processor blend the basil and cream cheese until you have a green paste.
  • Spoon the cream mixture into a piping bag with a star attachment and pipe the mixture into the cucumber.
  • Top with the sun dried tomato pieces
