  • 2 cucumbers peeled and trimmed
  • 8 ounce feta cheese block feta preferred
  • ¾ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill sub 1 tablespoon fresh dill
  • Lemon zest to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Fresh dill for garnish


  • Slice the peeled cucumbers into ½-inch circles. Place on a serving platter or tray.
  • In a blender, combine the feta cheese, yogurt, garlic, and dill. Blend until smooth, adding a dash of water as needed to promote blending. Pour the whipped feta into a plastic bag. Seal the bag and use scissors to cut off a small piece from one of the bag's bottom corners. This will create a makeshift piping bag. Squeeze a small amount of the whipped feta onto each cucumber slice.
  • Garnish the canapes with fresh lemon zest, black pepper, and sprigs of fresh dill.


  • You can prep these up to 3 hours in advance. Cover with plastic wrap and store in the fridge until you plan to serve them.
