Stuffed Cucumbers

I was planning to take this appetizer to a potluck with a mommy group that I’m part of, but it ended up getting canceled, so I made it for us at home. It was fine, but nothing special. It needs a little something else to be really special. I shouldn’t have bothered peeling the cucumber – I like the flavor of the peel. I think if this had a little more mixed into the cheese, it would have been better. It’s a great idea! I think also maybe a creamier cheese would hold up better – the crumbly feta tends to fall out easily.

    Try this trick which worked for me…cut the cuke into 1″ chunks, use a melon baller to scoop out the seed part but make sure there is a little bit left behind for the base. Fill with anything you want. My fave is a bit of Thai sweet red pepper sauce in the cuke cup, drop in a tiny boccocini, top with a Thai or regular basil leaf.
