Cucumber Tuna Boats

Rated as 3.8 out of 5 Stars

"For a refreshing summer meal, you can't beat this creamy tuna salad mounded into cucumber halves. Hard-cooked eggs make the salad extra hearty, and the crispness of the cucumber is delightful. It's an extra-special luncheon entree or light supper. -Mildred Stubbs, Hamlet, North Carolina"

This is fantastic! I tried it last night. I used an English cucumber which didnt have much seeds so i think next time i would chop large pieces of the cucumber and just mix it in, and eat it as ...

Not very appetizing at all for me. For all of the strong flavors in it -- the onion, the tuna, and the cheddar, it was almost bland. The sweet relish and the lemon juice stood out in a bad way, ...

4 stars, 5 with my modifications. I added 1/2 tsp. dry, 1T chopped fresh basil, and didn't add the cheese. I did use the eggs, Salade Nicoise combines tuna and eggs and it's yummy! Anyhow, ma...
