Inside-Out Veggie Dip

Ingredients
2 large cucumbers
16 cherry tomatoes
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup finely chopped sweet red pepper
2 tablespoons finely chopped celery
2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion
1 tablespoon finely chopped carrot
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions
Peel strips from cucumbers to create decorative edges if desired; cut into 1/2-in. slices. Finely chop two slices; set aside. With a small spoon, scoop some of the seeds from the remaining slices.

Cut a thin slice from the bottoms of tomatoes to allow them to rest flat. Cut a thin slice from tops of tomatoes; scoop out pulp, leaving a 1/4-in. shell. Invert onto paper towels to drain.

In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese, red pepper, celery, onion, carrot, seasonings and chopped cucumber.

Fill tomatoes and cucumber slices with cream cheese mixture, about 1 teaspoon in each. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Yield: 3-1/2 dozen.
