Preparation time: forty minutes

The serving size is 8 pieces.

You will require the following ingredients:

4 ounces softened brick cream cheese

1 tablespoon ranch dressing

2 tbsp. fresh dill or thyme

3-4 long cucumbers, peeled and cut into 1 inch slices

15 cherry tomatoes (cut in half)

Toppings: salt to taste, paprika, or cajun spice blend

Step 1: In a mixer, combine the softened cream cheese, ranch dressing, and herbs to make the herbed cream cheese. Mix them thoroughly until they are homogenous. Fill a piping bag fitted with a star tip with the mixture.

Step 2: Wash the cucumber, remove the peel, and score the sides with a fork. Cut the cucumber into 1-inch segments. Remove a part of the center of one side of the cucumber using a melon baller, making a half-moon crater.

Step 3: Next, pipe the herb cream cheese into the crater, leaving about 12 inches sticking out of the top.

Step 4: Sprinkle salt, herbs, and spice mix for garnishing and coloring over half of the cherry tomato partially buried in the herb cream cheese. Serve chilled.
