First, Make the herbed cream cheese: in a stand mixer, mix the softened cream cheese with the ranch dressing and herbs. Mix until well combined. Spoon into a piping bag with a star tip.
Prepare the cucumber, remove peel, and using a fork, score the sides. Slice into 1 inch pieces. Using a melon baller, remove a portion of the center of one side of the piece of cucumber, leaving a half moon crater.
Pipe the Herb Cream Cheese into the crater. Enough to stick out of the top about 1/2 inch.
Add a half Cherry Tomato partially buried into the Herb Cream Cheese
Sprinkle additional salt, herbs and spice mix for additional color. Chill in the fridge until ready to serve.
Serve chilled and enjoy!
