  2. Cut off the ends of cucumber and slice into 1-inch rounds.
  3. Using a melon baller, scoop out the seeds and inner flesh from the top 2/3's of each cucumber slice to create a tiny bowl in each piece of cucumber(DO NOT scoop all of the way through); Set aside.
  4. In a bowl, combine equal parts cream cheese and sour cream.
  5. Mix in salmon, shallots, lemon juice, salt and pepper, combining thoroughly.

Delightful Tasty Healthy appetizer. I used lite cream cheese and instead of sour cream I used cottage cheese. The cucumbers were Lemon or also known as apple cucumbers - they are very mild and burbless - Lovely appetizer served with my Sunday Martini.
