First off, yay for cameras that don’t know how to focus!
Super easy snack recipe! Low carb, low fat, low calorie, high in vitamins…need I go on? These little “cucumber boats” are something my mom used to make when I was little, apparently. I don’t really have any recollection of this, especially since I don’t remember liking cucumbers until I was around 15…but hey, who am I to argue when the woman was on to something?
It’s really quite simple: First make some tuna salad. I mix a 3 serving packet with a heaping tablespoon of reduced fat mayo, a heaping tablespoon of fat free sour cream, a couple squirts of spicy mustard, some garlic and onion powders, a few shakes of dill weed, and black pepper. Next, slice up maybe a tablespoon’s worth of 2% sharp cheddar (or whatever cheese is on hand, personally, I think the stronger flavor goes well). Then, you take about 1/3 of a cucumber (English cucumbers for the win!), cut it in half both ways, and scoop out the soft part of the inside until you’re left with little “boats.” Then put a spoonful of tuna salad in each and top with cheese!
You get veggies, fish, protein, calcium, vitamins, minerals. THEY’RE YUMMY AND ARE LESS THAN 100 CALORIES. Go for it.
This made four “boats”…I et one already ;)
