Tag me @CleanFoodCrush if you try em’!Makes 6 servings (as an appetizer, or light meal)
- 2 large English cucumbers
- 8-10 ounces wild-caught tuna, drained well
- 2 stalks of celery, diced very small
- 2-3 green onions, diced
- 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt (OR smashed avocado instead of the yogurt)
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
- 2-3 tsps fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 4 Tbsps fresh chopped dill
- a pinch of chili flakes
Slice the cucumbers right down the middle length wise.
Then, using a spoon, gently scrape out the insides.
Cut the halves in 4-5 equal pieces depending on the length of your cucumber.
Discard the scooped seeds and set the cucumber “boats” aside on a large platter.
In a small bowl add the drained tuna and gently mash with a fork until it’s all flaked. Add in the celery, green onion, yogurt, dill, lemon, smoked paprika, sea salt and pepper.
Mix all of the ingredients together with a fork until everything is nicely combined.
Place the fresh tuna salad mixture into each cucumber half.
Top with green onion slices, and sprinkle with a pinch of chili flakes.
