Sick of showing up at parties with the same boring chips and dip appetizer as everyone else? Looking for something new and fun to impress others? We have the answer for you!

 

This recipe replaces the typical crackers or chips, and uses cucumber cups instead!

 

Ingredients:

 

2 cucumbers

1 1/4 cups diced cooked chicken breast

1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt

1 tsp. fresh lemon juice

1/2 tsp dill weed

Salt and Pepper to taste

 

Directions:

 

1. To make the cucumber cups, first peel your cucumbers. Slice the peeled cucumbers in 1 inch rounds. Using a melon baller or teaspoon, carve out the middle of the cucumber slices. Be sure you do not carve out too much and poke through the bottom.  Set the cucumber cups aside while you prepare the chicken salad.

2. Combine the chicken salad ingredients in a medium bowl.

3. Pack the cucumber cups with the chicken salad right before serving and enjoy!
