Cucumber Appetizer Cup

Makes 18 -20 vegetable appetizer

2 large cucumber, English or regular size unpeeled
1/4 cup celery diced finely
1/4 cup cooked fresh lobster or crab finely chopped
1 teaspoon fresh lime zest
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
3 teaspoons green onion sliced thinly
1-1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Salt & Pepper to taste
celery leaves for garnish

Cut cucumber crosswise into 1" pieces. With cut side down cut a small amount off each side angling the knife slightly toward the center leaving a small amount of dark green peel on each corner (see my photograph). Scoop out centers with a melon baller making a cup, leave a 1/4" wall on all sides.

Combine celery, lobster or crab, lime zest, lime juice, onion, olive oil, salt and pepper. Lightly salt each cucumber cup, fill with vegetable appetizer, garnish with celery leaves and serve.
