  • 2 medium cucumbers
  • 1/2 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 3 teaspoons snipped fresh dill, divided
  • 1 cup chopped cooked chicken breast
  • 1 cup chopped seeded tomato (about 1 large), divided
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen peas, thawed


  1. Cut each cucumber lengthwise in half; scoop out pulp, leaving a 1/4-in. shell. In a bowl, mix yogurt, mayonnaise, garlic salt and 1 teaspoon dill; gently stir in chicken, 3/4 cup tomato and peas.
  2. Spoon into cucumber shells. Top with the remaining tomato and dill.
