PREPARATION
1.
Combine sunflower seeds and salt in bowl of food processor. Process for 10-20 seconds until they form a fine powder. Add remaining ingredients onion through water and process again for 1-2 minutes, until super creamy. You will likely have to scrape down the sides once or twice. Set aside.
2.
If desired, peel cucumber lightly in alternating rows, to create a pretty striped effect on outside. Slice into 1-1.5" pieces and set aside.
3.
Spread a spoonful of "cheese" on top of each cucumber and place on plate or platter. Continue until done, sprinkle with chopped chives and sumac if desired, and enjoy!.
NOTES, TIPS, TRICKS, HINTS, ETC:
Best served chilled so make them ahead and pop them in fridge for an hour or so. The recipe makes about 50 pieces, perfect for a party, but you can half it if you prefer.
