Cucumbers topped with Sundried Tomatoes
- 3 or 4 cucumbers
- 2 jars of sundries tomatoes in olive oil, drained
- 1 or 2 packages of feta or goat cheese, whichever you prefer, crumbled or chopped
- Fresh basil leaves, opitional
Wash cucumbers and cut off tips. Run a fork down the sides of cucumbers, this technique adds decoration to the sides. Cut cucumbers into slices approximately 1/4 inch to 3/8 inch thick. Place slices on a serving platter.
Put sundried tomatoes in a food processor and blend until they are finely chopped. Spoon tomato mixture on top of each cucumber slice. Top with cheese, and, if you like, you can add fresh chopped basil to tops of appetizers. Also, you may want to use a few of the fresh basil leaves as a garnish to dress the platter.
*Note – As you can see, there is no measuring required for this recipe. You can make as little or as much as you like – just adjust the amounts to fit your needs. You can also use roasted peppers instead of the sundried tomatoes. Trying other cheeses, such as fresh provolone, may work as well, so feel free to experiment and be creative. Also, this is a very attractive looking dish. My friend presented it on white, square platters and garnished the platters with the fresh basil leaves – absolutely beautiful!
