Inside Out Veggie Dip

From Taste of Home

I came across this amazing “inside out veggie dip.” It’s a mix of healthy and tasty. It’ll be perfect to serve at that New Year’s Eve party!

Inside-Out Veggie Dip Recipe


Ingredients

2 large cucumbers

16 cherry tomatoes

1 packet of soften cream cheese

1/4 cup finely chopped sweet red pepper

2 tablespoons finely chopped celery

2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion

1 tablespoon finely chopped carrot

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon onion powder

How to make it

Peel the cucumber into two thin slices and if possible with a decorative edge to give that fancy look. With the rest of the cucumber scoop out the seeds and set aside.

Cut a thin slice from the bottoms of tomatoes to allow them to rest flat. Cut a thin slice from tops of tomatoes; scoop out pulp, leaving a 1/4-in. shell. Invert onto paper towels to drain.

In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese, red pepper, celery, onion, carrot, seasonings and chopped cucumber.
Fill tomatoes and cucumber slices with cream cheese mixture, about 1 teaspoon in each. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
