I originally got this idea from a diabetic magazine, however I have altered it to suit me - it does have cheese in it, but I have replaced bread or crackers with slices of cucumber instead.

Very easy and tasted delicious, and you could vary the toppings.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: no cooking required
Serves: 1

Ingredients
Continental cucumber
Squeeze of sriracha hot sauce
Cheese
Goats cheese (optional)
Sliced olives

Method
Chop as many slices of cucumber as you would like to eat - I did about 12 slices - not too thin.

Cut to about this thickness


I also melted the cheese first, but this is optional and to do this, put pieces into a dry frypan and cook till it starts to melt and go brown.

I had some goats cheese so also used this, however you could use any cheese.

Put the cheese on each slice of cucumber, and top with a small dash of the sriracha sauce (it is very hot), olives, and/or parsley or anything else!

These would also have been nice with some hummus under the cheese....there could be many variations on these, and they are healthy, and low in fat especially if you use goat's cheese, and are great for those who do not eat bread.

Finy, Your recipe makes a nice change from me only eating cheese or peanut butter on my cucumber slices! Ricotta may also be ok on them.
Now you've got me thinking of different things to put on the slices. I'll be eating more of them now!

yes, it IS a good idea! and you can use so many toppings also! You could do the same with watermelon, and rockmelon!

I really love this idea. I will be doing it for my own lunch and as part of a platter when I have a guest who is gluten intolerant or simply doesn't like bread or crackers.
