Introduction

This is a Kentucky blue grass state recipe, made with chia seeds for added nutrition. Traditionally served on crustless white bread, it's better on whole grain crackers or toasted breads.

Ingredients

    Peel the cucumber, slice longways, and scoop out the seeds. Take the firm parts and chop fine with a knife. Don't use a blender or it will be too mushy. Chop a red onion fine and put 2 Tbs into the bowl with the chopped cucumber. Put the cream cheese into the bowl also.
    Sprinkle 30 g of chia seeds over this. (Chia seeds help you feel full and maintain your blood sugar levels).

    Peel 2 large cloves of garlic and express the juice into the bowl. Add 1 tsp of dill and 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (more pepper if you like it to kick!). Use garlic powder if you don't have fresh garlic.

    Stir well, so that all the ingredients are mixed together evenly. Refrigerate in a covered container 4 hours before serving. (56 g is a very filling snack with veggie sticks.)

Tips

Can serve on gluten free crackers. Also good on celery sticks (peel the strings first!). I use real cream cheese because I don't like the fake ingredients in the "low fat" type.

Directions

This is a cold food & the flavors set up better if refrigerated for 4 or more hours.

Chia seeds give this snack a reason to go beyond total "junk status" but it should be a rare occasion food, none the less.
