cucumber, goat cheese and salami appetizer

This is possibly the easiest appetizer you’ll ever make. Unless you count pre-made appetizers that you just microwave or bake but this one may even rival those because there is literally no cooking involved in this recipe. It’s just assembling.

It’s also perfect for summer because it’s light and refreshing, and like I mentioned above, you don’t have to turn your stove top or your oven on. I don’t know about you but I eat a TON of cucumber in the summer. It’s full of water and the crisp texture is great for a quick, healthy summer snack. Add some cool, creamy goat cheese and a piece of salami and you got it made. Literally.

Bonus: It’s only 3 ingredients!

cucumber, goat cheese and salami appetizer

1 English or hothouse cucumber
1 package of soft, creamy goat’s cheese (like Trader Joe’s Goat’s milk creamy cheese (pictured below)
Trader Joes Goat's Milk Creamy Cheese
1 package of salami (I like Columbus brand Italian dry salami)


1. Slice the cucumber into 1/4 inch slices on a diagonal.

2. Using a teaspoon or a butter knife, scoop some of the creamy goat cheese out and spread it on each cucumber slice. Repeat for each slice.

4. Cut the salami slices in half or quarters (depending on how large your salami slices are) and lay on top of the goat cheese and cucumbers. Repeat for each slice.

5. Arrange on a plate and serve!
