Crab Cucumber Cups

Sticking with my festive red and green theme, I made these tasty little guys for a friend’s New Year’s Eve party.

Makes about 10

English cucumber, cut in 1 inch slices
1/2 cup crabmeat, chopped
zest from 1 lime
Juice from ½ lime
1 green onion stalk, sliced fine
½ medium red bell pepper, finely diced
1 tsp fresh rosemary, minced
1 tsp fresh thyme, minced
1 tsp fresh Italian flat leaf parsley, minced
Salt & Pepper, to taste

In a medium mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients (except cucumbers), drizzle with EVOO and mix well. Set aside.

Scoop out centers of cucumber slices using a melon baller, creating little cups. Season cups with salt. Fill each cup with crab mixture.

Enjoy bringing in the new year with these tasty and beautiful little guys!
