Cucumber Pesto Bites


In 2007, I threw a tea party and invited my girlfriends, most of whom I had known since elementary school. We started a lovely tradition that year and have met up every spring for tea and brunch since. Now, six years later, we had our annual tea party. I LOVE this tradition. We did a potluck meal, so I can give you the recipes for what I made.

These are just like the cucumber pesto rolls I made for Hannah's shower only SO much easier! The only difference is the shape of the cucumber slices.

  • 8 small garlic cloves
  • 1 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon
