Amazing Cucumber Feta Beet Bites with Basil

Jump to Recipe

I knew when I was marinating the beets that it would compliment the feta cheese I made. Using the almond cheese as a topping on cucumber bites and adding the chopped beets that had been marinating, and then adding some fresh basil made a perfect appetizer. Cucumber Feta Beet Bites with Basil are colorful and tasty! We love snacking on these amazing cucumber feta bites topped with beets and basil. I think you will, too!

These are so easy to make

STEP 1: Wash and peel cucumber. Then cut in half width-wise. Then cut each half in half. Then cut in quarters length-wise. Now you have 1 1/4 – 2 inch quarters of cucumbers and a flat area to put on your toppings. This is a good size because it can be eaten in about two bites. This makes it ideal for a party appetizer, date night treat, or a healthy snack. Next step is to put them down on a tray.

STEP 2: Next take a spoonful of feta cheese (I use this one.) Try to keep it just on the cucumber and then take the spoon and flatten it a bit for the marinated beet topping.

Step 3: Take Marinated Beets (I use this recipe), drain them, and put in a food processor. Pulse several times until you get small bits of beets (you don’t want pureed, just finely chopped – however, if you go to far – I’m sure pureed will be just as tasty but harder to keep on your spread). Put about a half of the chopped beets on top of the almond feta cheese.

Step 4: The last step is to hand chop some fresh basil and put on for garnish and taste. Now enjoy your Cucumber Feta Beet Bites!

These are bright and colorful. Making it hard to resist to take a bite…… or two.

    This is great. I just bought a 10 lb bag of beets (for only $2) and I wasn’t sure how to use them all up. This will certainly help. And now I will have to throw a get-together to have my friends try it. Thanks for the recipe!

    1. Thank you, I’m glad you like the recipe! What a great find and deal you got on your beets. Hope you have a fun get-together!
