Caviar Cucumber Cups
An elegant but low calorie way to start the party.

Servings: 18 Appetizers

3 large Cucumbers
12 ounces low fat sour cream
1 large clove chopped garlic
3 tablespoon very finely chopped red onion
4 ounces caviar
Freshly ground cracked black pepper and scant salt to taste

Wash and score cucumbers with a vegetable peeler length-wise, removing one strip of peel and leaving one strip of peel in order to create a striped pattern on the vegetable. Cut off both ends. Slice cucumbers into round, thick slices of about 1 inch in thickness. With a melon-baller, scoop out the seeds and inner flesh from the top 2/3's of each cucumber slice. Do not scoop all of the way through. Set aside.

In a chilled metal bowl combine sour cream, chopped garlic, red onion, black pepper and scant salt. Be careful not to over-salt as the caviar will also be salty.

Place small spoons of sour cream mixture onto your sliced cucumber cups. Top sour cream and cucumber cup with a dollop of caviar. Arrange on a tray. Serve immediately or chill for up to one hour before serving.
