The nutritional content of recipes is calculated by a registered dietitian. Because ingredients and measurements may vary, the values we give are close approximations.


  1. In a small bowl, mix together cream cheese, chives, onion and garlic powder; set aside.
  2. Cut the cucumber diagonally into ¼ inch thick oval slices. Lightly press each cucumber slice in between a paper towel to remove excess water, which will make it easier for the cream cheese to stick to the surface.
  3. Put cream cheese mixture into a piping bag with a decorative tip and pipe onto each slice of cucumber.
  4. Sprinkle with black pepper and top with a few strips of sundried tomatoes and a fresh dill sprig.
