Step-By-Step for Making Cucumber Pimento Cheese Bites

Pimento Cheese Bites
Cucumber Slices for Appetizers

First, slice your cucumber. You can slice it thinly, but make sure there is enough room to hold your pimento cheese.

Scoop out Cucumber Slices

Use a melon baller (or small spoon) to scoop out the center of the cucumber, but be careful not to scoop all the way through the bottom of the cucumber.

Cucumber Canape

This part is totally optional, but I think it makes for a pretty appetizer! Use a vegetable peeler tool to carefully peel a striped design around the cucumber bites.

Cucumber Pimento Cheese Bites

Fill up your mini cucumber bites with pimento cheese and a garnish of chives (green onions, thyme and rosemary also work well as garnishes). If you want to use premade, store-bought pimento cheese, GO for it! They’ll taste just as delicious.
