These cucumber boats are one of my favorite go-to snacks. They are easy to make and they’re filling. 

I love cucumbers. I eat them with dip, or on sandwiches….there’s just so much you can do with them!

I use one whole cucumber that is cut into four pieces with the seeds scraped out.

That’s the most labor intensive part of this recipe….and it takes about 3 minutes.

Plus cucumber, cottage cheese and dried dill are things I usually always have on hand. That’s the reason I started making this snack.

Sometimes the most basic recipe can be the most satisfying.

These cucumber boats hit the spot!
