4 ounces chevre goat cheese, room temperature

1/4 cup Greek yogurt

1/4 red bell pepper seeded and chopped, plus 1/4, for garnish

1 lemon, zested

1 garlic clove, minced

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

1 teaspoon dried Mediterranean oregano

2 teaspoons chopped mint leaves

1 English cucumber, sliced into 1/2-inch rounds


  1. Put the goat cheese, yogurt, 1/4 red bell pepper, lemon zest, garlic, salt, pepper, oregano, and the mint in a food processor and puree until smooth. Transfer the goat cheese mixture to a resealable plastic bag and cut a small hole in the corner. Lay out the cucumber circles and squeeze a little of the goat cheese mixture out of the bag on top of each circle. Thinly slice the remaining 1/4 red bell pepper and garnish each cucumber with 1 slice of the pepper. Arrange them on a serving platter and serve.
