Cucumber Bagel Spread

On this episode of Recipe Hoarders... I finally get around to making a bagel spread I cut out of BH&G in 2006. Super simple, only 5 ingredients and ~tis the season~ for cucumbers!  
Wow, if I added some red bell pepper this would have fit nicely with the Christmas in July theme!

My thoughts:
  • I really like the nice crunch you get from the cool, crisp cucumbers.
  • I had a little cuke from the garden so I didn't peel it.
  • Subbed about 2 Tblsp of finely minced onion for the scallions. Sprinkled chives for color.
  • Salt is important in this, I added a lot of freshly ground black pepper too.
  • Overall it's tasty and a nice way to use up a cucumber.
Have a happy day:@)

  1. Are you open to new members in your "recipe hoarders' club? I am the queen of clippers and hoarders and non-users of many! This spread looks refreshingly delicious!

    Best,

  10. Recipe Hoarders, I am drafting a post as I type this comment! I love this recipe as I love cukes (and bagels). Red bell pepper would make it snap, crackle and pop. xo

  15. It's not even 6:00 AM. Too early for me to be laughing out loud at your term "recipe hoarders". Isn't that just the truth of it? I am trying hard not to become a pin hoarder on pinterest but really bring those recipes to fruition. I should blame you, actually. It seems like I'm always seeing something on this blog to try.

    Just happened again in fact.
