the easiest summer appetizer ever {kirby cucumbers with basil & mint}

After work and before dinner, I think its really nice and relaxing to put out a little spread of snacks to have with some wine or prosecco so everyone can unwind and catch up on each other’s days. I usually put out a few cheeses, Marcona almonds, fig spread, some hummus and carrots, and maybe a few grilled shrimp. Lately I’ve been adding these cucumbers to the mix.

I like the kirby cucumbers best- they’re smaller and crunchier, with less seeds.
 Just cut the cucumbers in half lengthwise, then again through the middle, and arrange seed-side up on a plate. Drizzle with a little bit of olive oilsea salt and black pepper, and a few tablespoons each of fresh basil and mint chopped up together. The mint adds a nice brightness that makes the cucumbers even more refreshing, and the basil adds a hit of flavor that makes this dish really special. This appetizer is super light and refreshing, making it perfect for August’s steamy nights.
