Tuna Boats

How gratifying it is to come up with unusual Appetizers!  This one is popular with adults however, I have to admit my oldest son thought they were incredible!  These are pleasurable to eat as well because you can cut them in half and eat them in smaller proportions without them being too messy. So proper!
2 cucumbers, cut lengthwise, seeds removed
1 7oz. can tuna, drained
2 hard boiled eggs
2 Tablespoons vegan mayonnaise (You could use regular, this is all I had)
2 Gherkin's (sweet pickles), diced
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 Tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
Lemon slices to squeeze on top

Method

1) Cut cucumbers lengthwise and remove seeds.
2) Drain tuna place in a small bowl and add yolks of hard boiled eggs, reserving the egg whites for topping.  Also, add mayo (of your choice), chopped gherkin's and salt and pepper.
3) Stuff each cucumber with tuna mixture and top with chopped reserved egg whites.  Then lastly dust with chopped chives and add a slice of lemon to squeeze on top if desired.  Enjoy...These are so yummy!
