Care And Handling Tips
(NC) - For optimum flavour and performance, Ontario Greenhouse Vegetable Growers recommends:
Ontario Greenhouse Cucumbers are 96% water and a half cup sliced contains only 14 calories. The edible green skin is thin and unwaxed, so just pull back the plastic, wash and enjoy.
In a bowl, toss tomato quarters, oil and pinch of salt and pepper. Lay tomatoes on a baking sheet, lined with parchment paper, skin side down, and roast in a 400 F oven about 20 minutes or until they look like they are drying out and start to brown. Let cool. Chop into fine pieces.
Meanwhile, beat cream cheese until light and creamy. Add the tomatoes and beat until combined. Stir in vinegar; season with hot sauce, salt and pepper to taste. Stir in chopped pine nuts and refrigerate until needed.
To serve, slice cucumbers into 1/4 inch rounds. Scoop out a small amount of the seeded part to make a well. Pipe using a large star shaped tip into small mounds of cream cheese on top. Garnish with whole pine nuts and small slices of tomato.
Serving Size: Makes 36 Appetizers
