What a great sandwich for hot weather! :) :) :)

Just be sure to leave some of the skin on the cucumbers, as in the picture!!!
If you're like me, you could gas up the Good Year blimp eating them skinless. :D

Looks delish!!  Leaving some green on actually prevents cuke gas??!!  Really??!!

YAY!!!  When you post a photo AND the recipe, I can save it to my Pinterest LOW CARB boards for my use and everyone to see - thank you - not so w/just the recipe, tho'!  Everyone here has such great ideas/recipes, I wanted to share FTS with those newbies just starting out on low carb.

Ummmm, just had a second thought...  Doug/Umpa ~ perhaps you would prefer that I DO NOT post your recipes/pics on Pinterest??  Not a problem, just let me (and others here) know your thoughts.

Soooo appreciate all you do!!

You are so creative! It really looks like a sub. The photos are great I agree. Cukes will be in our garden so soon too.

Looks great. Would not have thought to use the cucumber whole. I usually chop it up and do salad.  My preference  would be to pop tuna mixed with mayo in it.  Would think this would be so cool to eat on a hot day. Be good little finger foods when people over in summer.

Yes Morgan ~ I think the possibilities could be endless!  Fill it with different goodies and slice it for parties, etc  :)

Tunafish Morgan? What a great idea! Maybe a tunafish with jalapenos and black olives?The cucumber will cool the peppers ;)
