Mediterranean Cucumber Hors d`oeuvres

1 English cucumber sliced
1 red  bell pepper  finely chopped
Sabra Classic hummus
Olive oil
1 tablespoon Paprika 
1 tablespoon Cumin 
2 garlic cloves minced
Dried Parsley flakes

Using a vegetable peeler, peel lengthwise down the cucumber  repeated to make a striped pattern, then slice the cucumber in ¼ inch slices, pat with paper towel to remove excess water and place on serving tray.

Using Sabra Classic hummus place 1 teaspoon of hummus of each cucumber slice.

Using a small skillet drizzle with Olive oil and place the finely chopped peppers, paprika , cumin  in the pan and sautee till soft, then add the garlic and sautee for 1 min. longer.
  With a slotted spoon  place a few peppers on each of the cucumbers with the hummus and lightly sprinkle with dried Parsley flakes all over and serve

I was selected to try  Sabra Hummus to create a recipe  as part of the  Foodbuzz Tastemaker program with Sabra.
