Tuna Stuffed Cucumber Buttons

Janie Frey


Our first garden this year produced some 'round-shaped' cucumbers with course seeds, but with great flavor, texture, and juicy. I didn't want to waste anything I pulled from our first attempt at a garden, including these cucumbers. So when I cut them in half and cleaned out the seeds, I envisioned a stuffed cup of some kind. Hence! My creation began! I hope you enjoy this quick, simple, and refreshing recipe as much as we have, friends! "To Your Best Health"! Janie
