For a change of pace, I like to serve these stuffed cucumbers in place of a lettuce salad. They're really refreshing, and a touch of French dressing makes them a colorful addition to any meal. —Mrs. Howard Phipps, Hernando, Mississippi

Ingredients

  • 1 medium cucumber
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Dash paprika
  • French salad dressing, optional

Directions

  1. Cut cucumber in half lengthwise. Scoop out seeds and pulp, leaving a 1/4-in. shell. Place seeds and pulp in a colander. Sprinkle with salt; drain for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the cream cheese, green pepper, onion, Worcestershire sauce and pepper; mix well. Stir in 2-3 tablespoons drained pulp. Spoon into cucumber shells; sprinkle with paprika. Refrigerate until serving. Serve with French dressing if desired.
