An easy to make and fun to serve party finger food. This creamy blue cheese and walnut mixture can also be used to stuff celery and cherry tomatoes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Using a zester, vegetable peeler or fork, score the length of each cucumber to create a striped effect.
  2. Remove the ends and cut each cucumber into 3/4 inch rounds.
  3. Using a melon baller, scoop out the seeds from the center of each round to form a cup.
  4. Reserve 1 tbsp of the walnuts as a garnish.
  5. Combine remaining ingredients and stir until well blended.
  6. Spoon the mixture into the cucumber cups, garnish with the remaining nuts and chill until serving time.

Yum! Perhaps the cucumbers in my area are small -- I made a 3/4 batch (18 cups) and needed two. Be sure to toast the walnuts for extra goodness. Use more green onions! While pleasant and creamy, it's kind of bland, so I add half a jar of minced garlic and a few tablespoons of italian seasoning.

These are great if you like bleu cheese. A lot of people don't though. Luckily, I'm not one of those people. I stuffed celery with it. I also decided that it is great to put on hamburgers.

Made these for backstage cast of 14. They were gone before intermission. Nice presentation of color. I just stuck a 1/2 walnut on top of each. Thanks!
