4 ounces of a brick cream cheese, softened

To make the herbed cream cheese, mix the softened cream cheese with ranch dressing and herbs in a mixer. Mix them well until they are eve. Spoon the mixture into a piping bag with a star tip.

Wash the cucumber, remove the peel, and using a fork, score the sides. Slice the cucumber into one inch pieces. Use a melon baller to remove a portion of the center of one side of the piece of the cucumber, leaving a half moon crater.

The next step is to pipe the herb cream cheese into the crater, put enough in a way that it sticks out of the top about ½ inch.

Add half of the cherry tomato which is partially buried into the herb cream cheese and sprinkle salt, herbs and spice mix for garnishing and colouring. Serve cold.
