These Cucumber Boats take just five minutes to make and are perfect for school or work lunches! Using homemade mayo keeps them completely Sugar Free, Paleo + Whole30 approved too!
Sometimes, I just want to eat food with my hands. It's more fun. Don't get me wrong, I have no problem dining with a fork and knife, but sometimes, I just want to get a little prehistoric and eat with my appendages. Also, sometimes I just don't want to run the dishwasher. In instances like this, using food as your silverware is the perfect solution.
These cucumber boats are not only the perfect hand-utensil recipe, but they are a super quick and tasty option for adults and kids alike. Prep the boat, fill it with tuna salad and eat away. Take it as a snack, pack it in lunchboxes, or fill up on it for dinner. Silverware optional.
Because this recipe uses homemade mayo, it doesn't contain sugar like most store bought mayo does. This keeps the dish completely sugar free which also makes it Whole30 approved. When you want to have a healthy lunch that takes minimal work but keeps you compliant for your Whole30 goals, this is the perfect recipe option for you!
