Cucumber Cream Cheese Spread

My kids snack all day long. Do yours? I’m not finding I’m snacking too … which is not great for trying to not gain weight right now. I’m on the hunt for new recipes for snacks that are healthier and will keep them full longer. I swear they have about 15 snacks before lunch every morning. I’m going to need to building a revolving door in the my pantry!

I had bought a bunch of cucumbers during my last Costco run and needed to use them up. I also had a block of cream cheese that was close to expiring, so off to Pinterest I went. I found a recipe for this spread that had both ingredients and I whipped up a batch. It was really good. I love the adding of the diced cucumber to the cream cheese and it was perfect to eat on sliced cucumbers or butter crackers.

8 oz block cream cheese, softened at room temperature
1/2 English cucumber, peeled and seeds removed, diced into small pieces
3 scallions, sliced
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
dash of salt

In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients with a hand mixer until smooth and creamy. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. When ready to serve, stir the spread and scoop into small bowls of individual servings. In addition to serving this spread with veggies and crackers, it would be great on a toasted bagel!
