This recipe makes 2 cucumber boats
  • • 2 large cucumbers
  • • ½ cup crumbled blue cheese
  • • 3 scallions, sliced, plus more for garnish
  • • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish
  • • 2 to 3 tablespoons Buffalo Ranch Dressing

FOR THE CUCUMBER BOATS: Cut 1 cucumber in half or in thirds lengthwise. Using a spoon, scoop out the seeds and insides and discard them.

FOR THE BUFFALO-CUCUMBER FILLING: Peel the second cucumber and cut it into ¼-inch cubes. You’ll have 2 cups. In a medium bowl, mix the cubed cucumbers, blue cheese, scallions, and 2 to 3 tablespoons of the Buffalo Ranch Dressing. (Save leftover dressing in an airtight container for up to 1 week.)

Stuff the cucumber boats with the cucumber salad and garnish with extra scallions and parsley.
