Ingredients

  • 2 large cucumbers
  • 16 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped sweet red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped celery
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped carrot
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder

Directions

  1. Peel strips from cucumbers to create decorative edges if desired; cut into 1/2-in. slices. Finely chop 2 slices; set aside. With a small spoon, scoop some of the seeds from the remaining slices.
  2. Cut a thin slice from the bottoms of tomatoes to allow them to rest flat. Cut a thin slice from tops of tomatoes; scoop out pulp, leaving a 1/4-in. shell. Invert onto paper towels to drain.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese, red pepper, celery, onion, carrot, seasonings and chopped cucumber.
  4. Fill tomatoes and cucumber slices with cream cheese mixture, about 1 teaspoon in each. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
