Ingredients

2 large cucumbers

1 lemon

2 green onions, diced

2 6 ounce cans low-sodium tuna packed in water

1 15 ounce can no salt added white beans, drained and rinsed

1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil

1 tablespoon Dijon or country mustard

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Before you begin wash your hands, surfaces, utensils, vegetables, and tops of cans.
  2. Cut cucumbers lengthwise and scoop out seeds with a spoon.
  3. Zest the entire lemon by scraping it across the small holes of a box grater and collecting the skin. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice into a medium bowl.
  4. Add the beans to the bowl and mash with a fork.
  5. Add green onion, tuna, oil, mustard, salt, pepper, and lemon zest to the beans and mix to combine.
  6. Evenly divide the tuna mixture between the 4 cucumber halves.


Tips

  • For a snack or party food, cut cucumbers into thick slices and place a dollop of tuna mixture on top of each slice.
  • Add chopped bell pepper or celery for extra color and crunch.
  • Try canned salmon, packed in water, instead of tuna for a different flavor.
