Have you guys ever tried the combo of dill, cream cheese, and cucumber together? Oh my goodness – it is flavor heaven. I’m going through a dill phase right now. I want dill in everything that I eat…everything. It is just so yummy and SO summery! I haven’t ever gotten into using dill in the past, but suddenly I’m all bout that life, yo.
I bought a spiralizer from Amazon recently. Well, actually…I didn’t buy it recently. I bought it like 4 months ago, but it has been sitting unopened in my kitchen cabinet since then. I only opened it this past weekend. I tried using it in a zucchini recipe, and I was not a fan of how it turned out. I am definitely planning on experimenting much more with it in the near future, but for now I used it on these cucumbers!
It takes literally two seconds to spiralize these babies up, and they end up being so thinly sliced and crisp. LOVE.
There are two elements of this recipe that make it so fantastically wonderful.
- The flavor combo. We’ve got the seedy, toasted everything bagel. The creamy, fluffy whipped cream cheese with fresh, flavorful dill and pungent garlic folded in. The fresh, thin, crisp cucumber topped with salt, pepper, and pinch of pepper flakes. Throw all of these together, and you’ve got the most delicious summery bite of food that exists!
- The texture combo. You end up with the BEST combination of textures in this bagel: crunch and chewiness from the toasted bagel, creamy richness from the cream cheese, and crisp freshness from the cucumber. Perfection.
