Today’s recipe is for one of my all time favorite healthy snacks. Quick and simply stuffed cucumbers with a spicy garlic yogurt sauce. For a heartier meal I like to add crab, salmon, tuna, or canned chicken to the yogurt mixture for added protein. These also make a great appetizer if you are looking for a Dukan friendly treat to bring to a get together.
