"These are supposed to be an appetizer, but I have also made them as boats and served them as the main dish for dinner. Either way, every time I make them I am practically begged to make more. Prep time includes overnight refrigeration. You'll probably have some crab mixture left. I've used it to make seafood melts (toasted English muffin topped with crab mixture and a slice of cheese, then broiled), or in sandwiches (it's really good on croissants), or I've just eaten it with a fork."

Lovely little appetizers. I made them when company came over for Christmas eve. Very well received!.
- 8 ounces imitation crab (if using real crab, only use 6 ounces)
- 2 tablespoons red bell pepper, chopped
- 2 tablespoons green onion, chopped
- 3 tablespoons olive oil mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon dried dill weed
- 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
- 2 medium cucumbers
What You Will Need
No special items needed.
Combine crab, bell pepper, onion, mayonnaise, dill and pepper in a bowl; cover and refrigerate at least 12 hours.
Cut cucumbers into 1-inch thick slices; hollow out seeds to form cups (make sure to leave about 1/4-inch on the bottom). I've found a grapefruit spoon works beautifully for this.
If making boats, simply cut the cucumbers in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds.
Fill each cucumber slice (or boat) with crab mixture.
