Reviews for Cucumber Pita Wedges
"I made this for a group of women and every one of them asked me for the recipe. It's different and tastes so great!"
"My siblings love these! I too toast the pita wedges before I spread the cream cheese mixture. I also do not put 2 tbs, I thought it was a bit too overwhelming, I cut it down to 1.25 Tbs. The teenagers wolf it down!!!"
"These were good tasting and simple. I served them as an appetizer on Thanksgiving. They were easy to put together at the last minute, and I received a lot of complements."
"My friends and family enjoy this appetizer. I toast the pita wedges for 2-3 minutes in my countertop oven before I spread the cream cheese mixture. Fantastic!"
"I love, love, love this recipe. Can't say how many times I've made it since it appeared in the magazine. Everyone just loves it!"
