Snack Attack: Cucumber Boat with Lox Spread

Since bagels are so dang high in calories, I have been searching for a new way to satisfy my craving for lox spread sprinkled with capers. The substitute is a seeded cucumber boat!!! It is not only satisfying and delish, but talk about increasing your veggie intake!!!

Here's what you need:

  • Half an English cucumber
  • Light Lox Spread
  • Capers
  • Diced tomato

Here's what you do:

  1. Cut the cucumber in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds.
  2. Fill cucumber "boat" with lox spread.
  3. Sprinkle with capers and tomatoes.
  4. Eat and enjoy!!!

Fit's Tip: Smoked salmon is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids even though it is smoke cured salmon. Also, you can make your own schmear with canned salmon and light or non-fat cream cheese.

Mmm this looks sooo good. I really like lox, cucumber, and a bit of cream cheese spread on dark rye Ryvita, though that's not as healthy as this cucumber boat!

Cucumber boats are one of my faves! You can do the same with thick slices, scoop out the middle and this way instead of two pieces, you can trick yourself into thinking you've had more!

Ick... cucumbers would totally ruin the lox spread! I'd much rather use it to fill mushroom caps.

Lox, yummy! Itd also be great on a toasted piece of whole wheat bread.

I'd try it with zucchini myself. Yum!

This sounds so delicious - I love each of those ingredients independently, why wouldn't they taste good together? But there must be something you can use the seed for, since I feel like that's the sweet part of the cucumber (relatively speaking, since a cucumber isn't really sweet at all!)
