CUCUMBER BITES APPETIZERS
Suggest a flavored cream cheese an dilute with some additional plain cream cheese. I have family members that do not like ranch dressing and family members that are Celiacs so I have to be careful. Remember recipes are ideas, change things up to suit your needs.

Wash, peel and slice cucumber into half inch slices.
Remove little of insides of the cucumber with a half tea spoon measurement.
Combine softened cream cheese, mayo, and ranch. Mix it well until smooth in texture.
