Rachael Rays Cucumber cups

Ingredients

    Ingredients (These are the actual ingredients called for in teh recipe. I used what I have on hand to list the abve ingredients and of course I am using reduced fat feta :-)

    1 small red onion, finely chopped
    1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
    1 vine ripe tomatoes, seeded and, finely chopped
    1/4 cup black olives, pitted and chopped
    1/2 tablespoon dried oregano
    1/4 cup fresh feta, crumbled
    1/2 cup parsley, chopped
    Salt and ground black pepper
    juice of 1 lemon plus 1/2 tablespoon zest
    2 tablespoons EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    2 English cucumbers, seedless

Directions

In a large mixing bowl, mix together the onion, pepper, tomatoes, olives, oregano, feta, parsley, lemon juice and zest, and EVOO. Season with salt and pepper, and reserve.
Peel the cucumbers partially, so it has 4 stripes of skin going down the entire length of the cucumber. Trim the ends of the cucumbers and cut each cucumber into slices 3/4 of an inch thick -- you should have about 20 pieces. Scoop out the center of each slice with a melon baler, leaving a shell of flesh.
Scoop about 1 to 2 tablespoons of the Mediterranean salad into the cucumber cups and enjoy your refreshing bite-size snack!

  • This was fantastic. You could use whatever Veggies you like. Have made it twice and the second time I was to lazy to make the little cucumber cups so I simply diced the cucumbers and added to the mixture. Yummy! - 8/14/10
