Cucumber Boats

Sometimes, I just want to eat food with my hands. It's more fun. Don't get me wrong, I have no problem dining with a fork and knife, but sometimes, I just want to get a little prehistoric and eat with my appendages.  Also, sometimes I just don't want to run the dishwasher. In instances like this, using food as your silverware is the perfect solution. 

These cucumber boats are not only the perfect hand-utensil recipe, but they are a super quick and tasty option for adults and kids alike. Prep the boat, fill it with tuna salad and eat away. Take it as a snack, pack it in lunchboxes, or fill up on it for dinner. Silverware optional.

PS - don't like tuna? Sub for chicken and it's just as good!
