Andi's recipes are always a big hit at our house. This is a simple little recipe that packs a big flavour. I made as an appie by slicing the cucumbers into 1/2 inch thick rounds scooping out a little well in the center without going all the way through. Added the filling using a small 1 inch scoop so there were little round balls of flavour nested in the holes. I used fresh basil finely chopped. Know for next time that I better double the batch!
- 2 cucumbers
- 1⁄2 lime (for rubbing)
- 1 red pimiento chile (I use jalapeno red pepper)
- 3 ounces cream cheese
- 1 teaspoon cream
- 1 teaspoon basil
- 1 tablespoon green onion, chopped
- 1 garlic clove, chopped
- salt and pepper (to taste, I add more salt)
- 1 pinch paprika
