Stuffed Cucumbers

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

    Sounds good. How do you serve this to an individual?

    This was ok. I usually love cream cheese but thought it was a bit too much in this recipe. On the other hand, my husband who does not like cream cheese loved these cucumbers. Others liked them as well.

    I made these one night when we had company. Wasn't long and I was getting a call for the recipe. A very tasty and refreshing way to use up your cucumbers.
