Description

A fun, healthy, delicious appetizer, featuring crab and cucumber with a kick of heat.

Ingredients

  • 3 whole Long Cucumbers
  • ¼ cups Sour Cream
  • ¼ cups Cream Cheese
  • ¾ cups Canned Crab Meat, Excess Water Removed
  • 1 teaspoon Hot Pepper Sauce
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Brown Mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon Green Onion, Minced

Preparation

Remove the peel from the cucumbers using a vegetable peeler. Cut the cucumber into 2 inch rounds/slices. Using a small melon baller, scoop out most of the inside seed part of the rounds. Note: You want to leave the walls and a thick portion of the bottom intact.

In a bowl, combine the sour cream and the cream cheese (softened) with a fork until well combined. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until combined.

Fill each of the cucumber cups with the crab dip. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve within 2 hours of making.

Was wondering what kind of cucumbers you used. I noticed that most call for English, but I only have the regular one’s; not sure of the name.

These look great, I am going to make them for a family get together tomorrow night. Would it be okay if I make the crab filling tonight and then put it into the cucumber slices tomorrow? I noticed it said to serve within 2 hours of making, but I thought that might be for after you actually top the cucumbers?
