Introduction

Perfect for your next party--or turn any snack into a festive event! Perfect for your next party--or turn any snack into a festive event!
Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 English (seedless) cucumber, peeled

    1/2 cup peas*
    1 tablespoon horseradish mustard
    1/4 cup sour cream, reduced fat
    1/4 cup hummus

    1 sprig fresh dill, separated into 12 sections

    * I used no-salt added canned peas, but you could also use thawed frozen peas.

Tips

We often turn to bread, crackers, or other whole-grain products as a vehicle to get dip from point A to point B. I like to use vegetables whenever I can. For this spicy, creamy dip, I used cucumber, but you could use any vegetable: hollowed cherry tomatoes, celery sticks, or endive leaves.


Directions

Cut the cucumber into 12 rounds (approximately 2 inches each). Scoop out the inner flesh being careful not to scoop out all the way through to the bottom. Place the slices on paper or cotton towels to drain.

Puree the peas, mustard, and sour cream using a blender or immersion blender, or mash with a fork until smooth.

Fill each cup with 2 teaspoons of hummus, then fill to the top with the pea mixture. Garnish with a dill sprig.

One filled cup per serving.

    Awesome idea! But I'd add the scooped out cucumber middle to the rest of the mix in the blender. - 8/6/12

    I usually hate when some just say they are going to try something instead of actually writing a review, but when you have Q's about a recipe, there is no other place to ask. Is that a tomato slice on top and is it only 26 calories if you eat all 12? What is the serving size? I'm thinking just 2. - 5/2/12

    I love cucs, peas, hummus...but this was lacking something. I think I'll stick with cucs dipped in hummus, no fuss and much easier. - 5/3/11
