Cucumber Cups with Mediterranean Salad
How cute are these?! I recently served this recipe as an appetizer for girls night and they were the perfect healthy appetizer.
Recipe from the Comfort of Cooking.
-1 small green onion, finely chopped
-1 vine ripe tomato, seeded and finely chopped
-1/8 cup black olives, pitted and chopped
-1/4 tablespoon dried oregano
-1/8 cup fresh feta, crumbled
-1/4 cup parsley, chopped
-Juice of 1 lemon plus 1/2 tablespoon zest
-1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
-Salt and ground black pepper
Using a vegetable peeler, remove the skin from the cucumbers to make stripes.
Cut the cucumbers into one inch "cups" and use a grapefruit spoon to remove the inside.
Mix all other ingredients together in a small bowl and mix thoroughly. Spoon the salad mixture into the cucumber cups and top with additional feta and green onion if desired.
These had wonderful flavor. I think I cut mine a little too big, they weren't perfectly bite size, but rather more like two bites. The salad on the inside was full of flavor and very colorful making for a lovely presentation. I had a few leftover and they kept pretty well in the fridge for about a day until Dave was able to eat them.
