 2 large English cucumbers
 4 oz goat cheese
 ½ cup pomegranate seeds
 ¼ cup pistachios, crushed
 ¼ cup fresh basil, thinly sliced



Peel cucumber (if desired) and slice into ¼ - ½ inch rounds.  

In a bowl, mix crushed pistachio, pomegranate seeds, and thinly sliced basil to mix.  Be careful to not crush the pomegranate seeds.

On a clean cutting board, spread a dollop of goat cheese on each cucumber round.  After the goat cheese is spread, add pomegranate seed/pistachios mixture.  You may need to press topping into goat cheese to get it to stay put.
