Ingredients

  • 3 oz cream cheese
  • 1 medium cucumber
  • 1 Tablespoon sour cream
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 dash pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon dash celery salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • almond flour bread or other low carb bread

Instructions

  • Grate cucumber and let drain until most of the liquid is gone.
  • Combine the cream cheese, medium cucumber, sour cream until smooth. Season with salt, pepper, celery salt and garlic powder.
  • Cut the low carb flax bread squares in half through the middle height of the slice to make them thinner. Spread cucumber mix on bottom slice and cover with top slice. Cut in half to make finger size.

Notes

The filling can be made dairy-free by using a non-dairy cream cheese style spread in place of the cream cheese and sour cream. I've used 4 ounces of Kite Hill plain spread instead of 3 ounces cream cheese and 1 tablespoon sour cream with excellent results.
