  1. Cut the cucumbers into 1 inch disks.

  2. Toss all except 2 tbsp cheese, the dressing and cucumbers in a large bowl and season to taste. Chill until ready to fill cups.

  3. Scoop out 1 tbsp from center of each disk with melon baller leaving sides and bottom intact.

  4. Fill with about a tbsp of salad mix and top with remaining cheese if using.

  6. Note: It is a forgiving recipe. I omitted the basil, used Lemon Pepper Mrs Dash. My dressing was a Sweet and Sour Cherry poppy seed dressing. I added a small onion [I mean baby size] You can play with this recipe and your ingredients and it works well. Use garden fresh veggies for the best taste.

  7. Note servings are not the number of cucumbers this makes. It should be about 36 cucumber slices.
