How to Make Cucumber Appetizers


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