Cucumber Bites with Cream Cheese and Dill

This is a crunchy, and fairly light quick little appetizer, snack or side dish. A soft goat cheese would also be excellent on these little cucumber bites. Dill, cucumber and cream cheese are a classic combination. Smoked paprika helps add a warm savory note and coarse sea salt enhances all of the combined flavors.

Mini Cheese Balls

Adapted from Food Network Magazine

These Mini Cheese Balls are a fun little appetizer or snack food for a casual get together.  Great for watching a sports game, movie night, or game night.  Dividing the cheese into smaller balls allows for various ‘toppings’.  Serve with a variety of flavored crackers alongside.  Of course, if you wish, you could just make one very large cheese ball.
