Tangy, Fresh Cucumber Bites

Simply Luxurious
One of my favorite appetizers in the summer. Fresh and full of flavor.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 8 people


  • 1 English cucumber
  • 1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons mayonaise
  • 1/2 cup red onion chopped
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese crumbled (1 ounce)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill weed fresh dill if possible


  • Prepping the Cucumber: Cut and discard the ends. Then as a way to create a more decorative cup, but also make it easier to eat, peel off three stripes, spaced evening down the sides of the cucumber. Then cut crosswise into 3/4 cup thick slices. When scooping out the cups of each slice, use a small melon baller or a metal teaspoon. Be sure not to go all the way through. Discard the scooped portion.
  • Marinate the cups: Whisk together the rice vinegar and the honey in a small bowl until the honey dissolves. Add the cucumber cups; cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Prepare the filling: Mix together the remaining ingredients in a medium size bowl: sour cream, mayonnaise, red onion, feta cheese, dill (keep a pinch extra for garnish) and salt.
  • Assemble the cups: Remove the cucumber cups from the marinade and place on a paper towel to absorb any extra liquid. Then fill each cup with the filling (approximately 1 teaspoon). Arrange on a serving plate, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Add a slight dash of chopped dill to garnish each bite.
