Creamy Tuna Cucumber Boats With Guacamole

I'm so happy to let you know that I'll be once again working with Sabra this year to create easy and delicious recipes using their products. This post is sponsored, but all opinions are my own.

A few weeks ago I received a delivery of 3 products from Sabra: classic hummus, classic guacamole and Farmer's Ranch Greek Yogurt Dip. It took me a few days to figure out what to make, and I think my Creamy Tuna Cucumber Boats With Guacamole were quiet a success!

I love tuna salad and typically make it with mayonnaise, white onion, olives, tomatoes and avocado. I also love tuna in sushi rolls with cucumbers and avocado and spicy mayonnaise. Well, I was out of mayonnaise and did not have avocados or sushi rice. What to do!? I used canned tuna and some of Sabra's products to create a healthier, almost carb free, but still delicious dish.


Makes 4 boats

1 5 ounce can solid white tuna, drained and flaked
2 tablespoons Farmer's Ranch
salt to taste
1 large English cucumber
1/4 cup guacamole
1 tablespoon sriracha (more or less to taste)
2 teaspoons black sesame seeds

1. Mix together tuna and Farmer's Ranch. Season with salt to taste.
2. Cut off the ends of an English cucumber and cut it in half and then in half again lengthwise to make 4 pieces. Scoop out the seeds of each quarter with a spoon. For more stability, trim the bottom of each "boat."
3. Divide the tuna mixture among each cucumber boat and top with dollops of guacamole and sriracha and a sprinkle of black sesame seeds.

These make for a light lunch or an appetizer. You can also make them in cucumber or puff pastry cups for individual servings.
