Put AwayThose Matches!

Put away those matches, these are not candles!  Today I am sharing something different, pretty, and practically non caloric.  Isn't that a change?  In case you are having company this weekend this is a great and refreshing hors d'oeuvre: Creamy Cucumber Cups.

                                                       Creamy Cucumber Cups

Ingredients:                                                 Yield: 24 cups

3 cucumbers

3/4 cup low fat cottage cheese

1/4 cup nonfat plain yogurt

2 tablespoons finely chopped chives

1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

3 dashes hot sauce

1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives or chopped prosciutto

Fresh dill for garnish


Peel each cucumber and cut evenly crosswise to 1 inch-thick slices.  Using a spoon, remove seeds from center without cutting bottom.  Transfer to a platter and set aside.

In a food processor, puree cottage cheese, yogurt,  chives, pepper, and hot sauce.  Spoon mixture into cucumbers, top with olives or prosciutto and garnish with fresh dill.  Cover and chill for 1 hour before serving.
