Cool As a Cucumber!

Take These Delectable Little Treats to Your Next Potluck!



3 long cucumbers

1/4 cup light sour cream

1/4 cup non-fat cream cheese, softened

3/4 cup crab meat (or imitation crab meat), excess water removed

1 tsp hot pepper sauce (like Tabasco or Tapito)

1 tsp spicey brown mustard

Salt and pepper to taste

1 tbs minced green onion

Garnish with chili powder or paprika if desired


Remove the peel from the cucumbers using a vegetable peeler.  Leave some strips of peel as decoration (see photo).  Cut the cucumber into 2 inch slices. Using a small melon baller or teaspoon, scoop out most of the inside. You want to leave the walls and a thick portion of the bottom intact.

Mix all the ingredients together.  Fill the cucumber cups with the crab mixture.  Garnish with chili powder or paprika.
