Recipe Yield: Serves 4

1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
Peel from 1 (12-ounce) English cucumber, coarsely chopped
2 packed cups watercress or arugula, finely chopped
2 slices prosciutto, chopped (or 1/4 cup bacon pieces, or speck, or whatever you have on hand), optional
Salt and pepper to taste

In a large bowl add the cream cheese and mustard until combined. Fold in the cucumber peel, greens, and prosciutto, if using. Fold in the greens and prosciutto, working them into the mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve on toast or a baguette with slices of fresh tomato.

Recipe Notes

  • This takes a minute to come together. I find it easiest to press or smash the ingredients into the cream cheese with the back of a wooden spoon as I fold.
  • For a richer version, replace the cream cheese with soft goat cheese, or mix the two.
  • Feeling lazy? This spread is also good scooped onto crackers and inserted directly into mouth.
