The hardest part of this recipe? Hands down, finding the phyllo cups. They seem to be something that not all grocery stores carry - in fact I had to go to three different stores. I found them at Meijer but I know that I have seen them before at Kroger, but of course not when I'm looking for them. You can find them in the freezer section, look in the area where the pre-made pie crusts, puff pastry, etc. can be found. Once you've found a couple of packages, you're only 10 minutes away from being done.
These would be a great appetizer for a bridal or baby shower, spring party or brunch since they are nice and light.

Cucumber Tomato Bites
Recipe from Brown Eyed Baker
1 cucumber, seeded and finely diced
1 tomato, seeded and finely diced
1/2 small red onion, finely diced
1/4 cup sour cream (I used reduced fat)
3 T cream cheese, softened (I used 1/3 less fat)
2 T lemon juice
2 T chives, finely chopped
2 T parsley, finely chopped
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
2 packages phyllo cups
Let phyllo cups come to room temperature while you make the filling. Add the sour cream, cream cheese, and lemon juice to a medium bowl. Mix until well incorporated to make a dressing. Add the cucumber, tomato and onion and toss with the dressing. Add chives, parsley, salt and pepper and toss to distribute evenly. Spoon the filling into the phyllo cups and refrigerate until ready to serve.
