Cucumber and Hummus Bites

Cucumber and Hummus Bites



I have always been an appetizers obsessed person.  I love making them, arranging them and then eating them.  Being in a family with a South Asian background we love our appetizers! The only thing is the appetizers are usually samosas, pakoras and sweets.  These are actually some of my favourite foods and I would say the ultimate appetizers! But whenever I can I try to be a little more health conscious about the food when hosting.  Not only have I become more health conscious when it comes to my own diet but I know that a lot of my guests probably have as well.  Now that doesn't mean I don't indulge myself with Samosas - cause trust me I do!

Anyways, these Cucumber and Hummus bites were perfect and fit all my criteria for appetizers: healthy, easy and quick to make, and lastly they looked really nice arranged! And guess what? They were hit with the dinner party guests we were hosting. Honestly these were gone quicker than any of the cakes and cookies we had also baked and arranged as appetizers.
