Ever dip cucumber slices into ranch dressing as a snack? Here we share that same great flavor in a fun new way. The cucumber "cups" hold the ranch so you don't have to worry about the dipping part.

Ranch cucumber bites recipe
Yields 12 bites
2 English cucumbers
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 envelope powdered ranch mix
Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)
Cut each cucumber into 6 (1 inch) pieces. Gently scoop out the center with a spoon, careful not to go through the bottom. You want to create a "bowl" out of the cucumber.
In a bowl, add the Greek yogurt and the envelope of ranch powder mixing well. Spoon the mixture into each of the cucumbers. Garnish with parsley and serve immediately.
