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!
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.
