Refreshing Cucumber Boats

Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream! ...just kidding.

Ever feel the need to eat something crunchy? Forget chips and pretzels! Try this recipe for refreshing cucumber boats!
These sweet and savory cucumber boats are easy to make, and they're a delicious lunch or a perfect appetizer before dinner!


  • 10-12 Persian Cucumbers (about 2 packages)
  • about 1 1/2 c. Mango, roughly chopped (about 2 large or 3 small mangoes)
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper, de-seeded and stem removed, roughly chopped
  • small handful of green onion, chopped
  1. Slice Cucumbers in half long ways. With a small spoon, scoop out the seeds to form "the boat."
  2. Blend Mango and Bell Pepper, but don't purée. Too much blending will cause it to lose some flavor. Some small chunks and red pepper flakes give it a nice texture and color.
  3. Carefully spoon the mango/pepper mixture into the cucumbers. Top with green onion and enjoy!
