Cucumbers… such a simple thing that can be enjoyed in so many ways! You’re just going to love this toasted sesame cucumber butter spread/dip… a fun outdoor gathering recipe to eat with crackers and toast points, and as a dip with veggies for all the keto folks in your posse. Keep some on hand for when neighbors walk over to sit a spell on the porch.
It’s a dip. A spread. A butter. A filling.
Spread on summer vegetable sandwiches on good bread or inside pitas.
Serve on charcuterie trays and grazing platters.
Tuck inside of lightly cooked mushroom caps.
Dollop on top of grilled meats… to “melt” when you take those hot steaks and chops off the grill.
Let your imagination run with this one… then come on over and share your ideas on my social media at:
