Ingredient Notes and Substitutions

The full list of ingredients for these hummus cucumber bites is above. Below are notes about some of the ingredients, along with ideas for substitutes.

Hummus – Homemade or hummus from the grocery store will work. Choose your favorite flavor or flavors. Our favorites are classic hummus , roasted red pepper hummus or sun-dried tomato hummus.

Cucumber – You can use just about any variety of cucumbers to make these appetizers. My preference is English cucumbers or small Kirby cucumbers. Look for young cucumbers that are smaller in size and try to avoid large cucumbers that will have large seeds.

These healthy appetizers are so versatile, and you can top them with any flavor of hummus and toppings that you like. In addition to the topping suggestions above, here are a few more.

Yogurt – Instead of hummus, use thick and creamy Greek yogurt or tzatziki sauce and sprinkle on fresh parsley and sesame seeds or chopped red onion and dill weed.

Guacamole– Top the cucumbers with guacamole with diced jalapenos and olives on top.

Spicy cucumber hummus bites – Add a dash of cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes to the hummus for a kick of heat.

Cream cheese or cottage cheese – These are also great toppings for cucumber bites. Sprinkle them with garlic powder, tomatoes, and chopped basil.

Greek-inspired cucumber hummus bites – Mix a quarter cup of feta crumbles into the hummus before adding it to the top of the cucumber slices.

Change up the toppings – Replace the toppings listed above with your favorite spice blend or just salt and pepper, a drizzle of olive oil, roasted red peppers, red bell peppers, goat cheese or feta cheese crumbles. You can also serve these cucumber bites plain with just hummus on top.

Serving suggestions

Serve hummus cucumber bite appetizers as a snack or at your next get-together with a charcuterie board, stuffed mushrooms, or spinach balls.

How to store leftover cucumber hummus bites

Even though they taste best when fresh, cucumber hummus bites can be stored in the refrigerator for a day or two in an airtight container.

  • Cucumber hummus bites taste best when they are cold, store them in the refrigerator until just before serving.
  • For more decorative hummus bites, use a pastry bag to pipe the hummus onto the slices of cucumber.
  • Don’t slice the cucumbers too thin, they need to be sturdy enough to hold that creamy hummus.
