Refreshing Cucumber Salad Bowls – a great picnic meal to whip up quickly and enjoy guilt free!
What You Need:
3 large cucumbers
1 (6 oz) can tuna in water, drained well
2 hard boiled eggs, chopped
1/2 c celery, chopped fine
1 tbsp sweet onion, chopped fine
1/4 c mayonnaise
2 tbsp relish
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 c Cheddar cheese, shredded
How to Make It:
Cut the cucumber in half longwise.
Remove the seeds and cut the bottom so the cucumbers set flat.
Place the tuna, eggs, celery and onion into a large mixing bowl.
Stir slightly to help breakup the tuna.
Add the mayonnaise and relish.
Stir together until the mayonnaise is slightly smooth.
Pour in the lemon juice.
Sprinkle in the pepper.
Stir to mix well.
Sprinkle in the cheese and continue stirring until all the ingredients are incorporated together.
Fill each cucumber half with the tuna mixture.
Cucumber boats can be filled with any type of salad. Egg salad, chicken salad or even ham salad make a great addition to any picnic.
