These adorable bite-sized appetizers are stuffed with savory sun dried tomato spread.


  • 3/4 cup sun dried tomatoes in olive oil
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1/4 of an avocado
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • crushed almonds for garnish (optional)


  1. Add sun dried tomatoes, avocado, sea salt, and red pepper flakes (optional for heat) to a food processor. Process until well combined into a paste.
  2. Using a mandolin, carefully slice the cucumbers into 1/16" slices.
  3. Add the paste into a piping bag or zip block bag. If using a zip lock bag, seal it at the top and cut a small amount off of one of the corners to make your own piping bag.
  4. Using the bag, pipe a line of the paste down the middle of a slice of cucumber.
  5. Carefully roll up the cucumber and stick a toothpick through to hold it all together.
  6. Top with crushed almonds if desired to add an extra level of flavor.
