Fresh cucumbers are delicious and refreshing. Naturally healthy, these are also easy and quick. There are cucumber roll ups, stuffed cucumber cups, juices, sandwiches, dips and more. Whether you grow your own or find them on sale, here are my favorite cucumber snack ideas!
Garden fresh cukes are delicious cut into snack sticks and sprinkled with a little sea salt or dipped in a homemade dip. The humble cucumber is known for being the star of a salad and getting pickled and put in sandwiches. We love them in everything, especially these snack and appetizer recipes!

Stuffed Cucumber Cups And Bites
Easy cucumber bites are so pretty on trays and simple to make. Try spooning the filling into a piping bag and pipe rosettes or neat circles on each slice of hollowed out cucumber. Persian cucumbers and long English cucumbers are the best type of cucumber for these with their thin skin.
Go classic with cream cheese filling or try out the cucumber taco bites for a Mexican snack. Try a tuna stuffed version with sushi flavors or spicy buffalo seasoned. There are chicken and salmon recipes and some vegan versions too, with hummus or vegan cream cheese. Getting hungry yet?!
Cucumber Sandwiches and Crostini
What's your favorite cucumber sandwich? Choose from vegan cucumber sandwiches, a classic cream cheese and herb version, delicious, savory smoked salmon and cucumber crostini and pinwheel roll ups. These make perfectly packable little cucumber snacks.
Who doesn't love a creamy cucumber ranch or dill dip? What about garlicky Turkish and Greek dips? Cucumber salsa is a great low carb appetizer or side dish and all of these are awesome snacks on hot summer days. Garden cucumbers are great for dips and the drinks below.
