Tuna Salad Pepper Cups Recipe

Tuna Salad Pepper Cups Recipe

I came up with this recipe on a hot summer day when I didn't feel like cooking. I frequently make it when friends come for lunch, and they all love it. Stuffed into a pretty pepper half, the fresh-tasting tuna mixture gets crunch from cucumber and green onions. It's priced right at 87¢ a serving. —Ellen Boucher Denver, Colorado
