healthy tuna salad in cucumber bowls

How to Make It:

Cut the cucumber in half longwise.
Remove the seeds and cut the bottom so the cucumbers set flat.
Place the tuna, eggs, celery and onion into a large mixing bowl.
Stir slightly to help breakup the tuna.
Add the mayonnaise and relish.
Stir together until the mayonnaise is slightly smooth.
Pour in the lemon juice.
Sprinkle in the pepper.
Stir to mix well.
Continue stirring until all the ingredients are incorporated together.
Fill each cucumber half with the tuna mixture and sprinkle with paprika.

Cucumber boats can be filled with any type of salad. Egg salad, chicken salad or even ham salad make a great addition to any picnic.
