Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped (8 tablespoons)

  • 1 English cucumber, ends trimmed (about 14 ounces)

  • 1/2 cup roasted red pepper hummus

  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat crumbled feta cheese

  • 5 cherry tomatoes, quartered

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and arrange walnuts evenly on a small baking sheet. Bake 8 minutes, checking frequently, until toasted.
  2. Slice cucumber crosswise into 18, ~3/4-inch thick slices. Using a small spoon, gently scoop out and discard the center of each cucumber slice, leaving bottom and sides intact.

  3. In a small bowl, stir 6 tablespoons chopped walnuts and hummus. Spoon walnut-hummus mixture into each cucumber slice and top with 2 reserved tablespoons of chopped walnuts, feta cheese and quartered tomatoes.
