A quick Appie that is also diabetic friendly!

Top Review by Halcyon Eve

These were tasty, pretty, and easy--perfect appetizers, in other words! I used regular mayo, reduced fat cream cheese (Neufchatel), and baby cucumbers. I made a smaller batch for the 3 of us to nibble while I prepared dinner. DH liked them and was impressed at how attractive they were; even DS liked them okay, despite hating cucumbers. Thanks so much for posting, Lorrie! Made for Holiday Tag Game.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the cream cheese, mayonnaise, and horseradish; chill at least 30 minutes.
  2. Score the cucumber lengthwise with the tines of a fork.
  3. Cut the cucumber crosswise into 1/2-inch slices, making 18.
  4. Using a melon baller or 1/2 teaspoon measuring spoon, scoop out a small hollow on the straight side.
  5. Do not cut all the way through.
  6. Transfer the cream cheese mixture to a pastry bag fitted with a fluted tip. Pipe the cheese mixture into the cucumber cups.
  7. (Use a small spoon if a pastry bag is not available.)
  8. Garnish the tops of the cups with parsley or dill sprigs.
