Creamy Cucumber Spread
A few years ago, I found the recipe on-line, as well as in a book from the library. However, the link does not work any longer, so I am sharing the recipe. And of course, for the milk, I used our goat's milk.
Creamy Pepperoni Cucumber Rounds
(from the New American Heart Association Cookbook, 7th edition)
2 ounces fat-free or light cream cheese softened
2 tablespoons fat free milk
10 turkey pepperoni slices, finely chopped
2 tablespoons minced green onion (green and white parts)
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1 medium cucumber
In a small bowl, using a rubber spatula, stir together the cream cheese and milk until well blended.
Stir in the remaining ingredients except the cucumber. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
To serve, cut the cucumber into sixteen 1/4-inch slices. Spread 1 teaspoon cream cheese mixture on top of each cucumber slice.
