DIRECTIONS

  • Using a potato peeler, make stripes on the outside of each cucumber by peeling down the length of the cucumber, leaving every other section intact.
  • Cut off the ends of cucumber and slice into 1-inch rounds.
  • 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.
  • In a bowl, combine equal parts cream cheese and sour cream.
  • Mix in salmon, shallots, lemon juice, salt and pepper, combining thoroughly.
  • Transfer the mixture to a pastry bag with a star 8 tip.
  • Pipe the filling generously into each cucumber section.
  • Garnish with sprig of dill.
  • As an alternative, use red pepper cream cheese.
  • Enjoy! ;).
