Hummus and Cucumber Appetizer Bites with Sesame Seeds
If you're looking for Super Bowl party nibbles, these hummus and cucumber bites are amazingly easy to make, fun to serve, and I promise that your hummus-loving guests will gobble them up. And if you happen to have any guests who are trying not to completely abandon their diet on game day, they'll love you for serving a diet-legal finger food like this. The only part that might be a little tricky to find is the black sesame seeds, but you can use regular white sesame seeds as well if you can't find the black ones.
- cucumbers, as many as desired (One large cucumber will make 10-14 appetizer bites)
- hummus (use purchased hummus, or see links to hummus recipes after the recipe)
- black or white sesame seeds
- materials needed: one small Ziploc bag or other thick plastic bag with one corner cut off

Peel cucumbers, either leaving strips of green (if the cucumber has thin skin) or peeling all the skin (if the cucumber has thick waxy skin. Slice cucumber(s) into thick slices about 3/4 - 1 inch thick. If the cucumbers seem watery, use a paper towel to press down on both sides to absorb some of the water and dry the surface of the cucumber.
Put hummus into a small bag made of thick plastic. (I used about 1/2 cup hummus to make 14 appetizers; you can always add more hummus to the bag as you're making them.) Cut off one corner of the bag so you can squeeze the hummus out, taking care not to make the hole too big.
Arrange cucumber slices on a plate or serving tray, then squeeze a mound of hummus on to the top of each cucumber slice. Sprinkle slices with sesame seeds just before serving.
