2 cucumbers (about 1 pound each)

2 ounces crumbled feta cheese

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon fresh parsley or dill, chopped

freshly ground black pepper, to taste


Cut the cumbers lengthwise.

Remove the seeds.

Cut a small strip off the bottom of one side so that the cucumber half will sit sturdily and wonโ€™t wobble back and forth.

Dice the other half of the cucumber into 1/4 inch pieces.

Combine the diced cucumbers with feta cheese, dill, salt and pepper.

Divide the mixture between the 2 cucumber โ€œboats,โ€ then slice into 1 1/2 inch pieces.
