One 6-ounce can salmon, drained and bones removed

1/2 cup 1/4-inch diced red bell pepper 

1/3 cup 1/4-inch diced celery

3 tablespoons 1/8-inch sliced green scallion

3 tablespoons plain nonfat Greek yogurt

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1 pound Persian cucumbers


  1. Combine the salmon, red pepper, celery, scallions, yogurt, lemon juice and salt in a bowl; mash with a fork. 
  2. Cut the tips off each end of the cucumbers; cut each cucumber across into 1-inch pieces. Use a melon baller to scoop out the center of each slice of cucumber, taking care to leave the walls intact and enough of a base to hold the salmon salad. Fill each cucumber with 2 to 3 teaspoons of the salmon salad and refrigerate until ready to serve.
