Ingredients

2 large cucumbers

1 lemon

2 green onions, diced

2 (6 ounce) cans low-sodium tuna packed in water

1 (15 ½ ounce) can white beans

1 tablespoon oil, canola or vegetable

1 tablespoon Dijon or country mustard

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Before you begin wash your hands, surfaces, utensils and vegetables.
  2. Cut cucumbers lengthwise and scoop out the seeds with a small spoon.
  3. Zest the entire lemon using the small holes of the box grater. Cut lemon in half. In a small bowl, squeeze juice. Discard seeds.
  4. Drain tuna and set aside.
  5. In a colander, drain and rinse beans.
  6. In a medium bowl, mash beans lightly with a fork.
  7. Add diced green onions, tuna, oil, mustard, salt, pepper, lemon zest, and 2 tablespoons of the lemon juice to beans. Mix with fork.
  8. Use a spoon to fill each cucumber half with ¼ of the tuna mixture.

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.
