3 long cucumbers
1/4 c
sour cream
1/4 c
cream cheese, room temperature
3/4 c
crab meat, excess water removed
1 tsp
hot pepper sauce (tabasco is good)
1 tsp
brown mustard
salt and pepper, to taste
1 Tbsp
minced green onion
garnish with chili powder or paprika


1Peel the skin off the cucumbers. Cut into 2 inch thick slices. Using a small melon baller, scoop out most of the inside. You want to leave the walls and a thick portion of the bottom intact.

2In a bowl, combine the sour cream and the cream cheese with a fork until well blended. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until combined.

3Fill each of the cucumber cups with the crab dip. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve within 2 hours of making. Garnish with chili powder or paprika.

Experiment with different dips like hummus or a greek yogurt spread. Enjoy!
