Stuffed Cucumbers

h2Chef’s note:/h2
pI don’t know what there is about things that are stuffed that just seem to say “SPECIAL.” These small bites are packed with flavor and very few carbohydrates. /p
pThe recipe shown below is a smoked salmon stuffing but if you ABSOLUTELY hate fish, use olives, sun dried tomatoes, chives. Or even bacon. You are limited ONLY by your imagination./p
