When you make the cucumber appetizers for Christmas it's fun to decorate them with a zester (a kitchen tool that you use for making orange/lemon rind). By using this you can make beautiful cucumber stripes.
If you want to create a small bowl in the cucumber, but not through and through, you can use a melon ball cutter (what a word) or a teaspoon for great results.
When you're looking for a substitute for tuna you can use canned salmon instead.
Do you want to prepare this snack in advance? You can prepare it in the morning by following these steps: shape the cucumber (cut, decorate, and making the hole). Wrap each piece into a damp paper towel and store it in an airtight bag. Keep in the refrigerator until use. At this time you can also prepare the tuna salad (also store in an airtight box in the refrigerator).
The recipe is gluten- and lactose-free, but always check the package of the ingredients carefully to make sure that there are no traces of allergens!
With the big hole in the zester slide long strings from your cucumber.
Cut the ends of the cucumber and divide in four.
Make a hole in each piece of cucumber with the scooper or teaspoon, but make sure it's not through and through (you want to get a bowl).
Mix the tuna with mayonnaise, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and whiskey.
Spoon the tuna salad in each bowl.
Garnish with grounded paprika and a string of cucumber.
