Directions

  1. Trim off the ends of each cucumber. Using a vegetable peeler, remove 3 evenly spaced strips of peel from each.
  2. To make the cucumber cups, cut each crosswise into 1-inch-thick slices and use a teaspoon to remove the seeds from the center of each without cutting through to the bottom.
  3. Transfer to a platter; set aside.
  4. In a food processor, puree cottage cheese, yogurt(or sour cream), 2 tablespoons chives, pepper and hot sauce.
  5. Spoon mixture into cucumbers, top with a sprinkling of the smoked salmon or olives and garnish with remaining chives.
  6. Cover and chill for 1 to 2 hours before serving. (Filling can be made up to 1 day ahead). Enjoy!
