Cucumber with yoghurt lemon zest dip

Serving healthy snacks at a party can be quite a challenge as everyone wants to eat healthy but it should not look unappetising. Normally when friends are over I always have the quintessential veggie sticks with a yoghurt dip. Here I have made an attempt to make healthy look attractive !


2 large cucumbers

3/4 cup Greek yoghurt

1/4 cup cream cheese

Juice of 1/2 lemon

Zest of 1 lemon

1 tbsp chopped fresh sage

1/4 cup dried cherries

1/2 tsp salt

A pinch of sugar

1/2 tsp pepper powder

1/4 cup pine nuts

2 cloves of garlic crushed


Beat the yoghurt and cream cheese well together and add the rest of the ingredients. Pour the mixture into a piping bag with the desired nozzle and refrigerate till ready to serve. Peel the cucumbers and cut them into thick rounds and arrange them on the serving platter. Pipe the dip onto each slice and garnish with cherries and nuts. You can choose to leave the peel on the cucumbers and the nuts for garnish can vary as per choice.
