Tuna Boats

Directions

  1. Rinse cucumbers. Cut lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds with a small spoon.
  2. Rinse lemon. Zest using the small holes of a box grater. Cut in half. In a small bowl, squeeze juice. Discard seeds.
  3. Rinse and chop green onions.
  4. Drain tuna. In a colander, drain and rinse beans.
  5. In a medium bowl, mash beans lightly with a fork.

Chef’s notes:

  • For a snack or party food, cut cucumbers into thick slices. Do not remove seeds. Place a dollop of tuna mixture on top.
  • Add chopped bell pepper or celery for extra nutrition and crunch.
  • Try canned salmon, packed in water, instead of tuna.
