Stuffed Cucumber Cups

Stuffed Cucumber Cups

These veggie bites are an appetizing, eye-catching addition to any outdoor spread. Serve them as a side or prepare them as a quick make-and-take snack.

  • 2 English cucumbers, about 12 inches long, ends trimmed
  • 1 cup hummus
  • Finely chopped scallions, for garnish
  • Finely chopped red or orange bell pepper, for garnish
  1. Using a fork, score the sides of the cucumbers to create decorative stripes. Slice the cucumbers into 3/4-inch-thick rounds.

  2. Using a teaspoon or melon baller, scoop a 1/3-inch-deep well in the center of each slice.

  3. Spoon 1/2 tablespoon of hummus into each cucumber cup, mounding it slightly. Sprinkle the tops with the scallions and bell pepper. Makes 32 cups.
