This is a yummy recipe that I found in a Diabetic cookbook. I wanted to share because it is easy, fast and delicious!

BLT Cukes

3 slices crisp-cooked bacon, chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped lettuce
1/2 cup finely chopped baby spinach
1/4 cup diced tomato
1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons fat-free mayonnaise
Pinch salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 large cucumber
Minced fresh parsley or green onion (optional)

1. Combine bacon, lettuce, spinach, tomato and mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper; set aside.

2. Peel cucumber. Trim off ends and cut in half lengthwise. Use spoon to scoop out seeds; discard seeds. Divide bacon mixture between cucumber halves, mounding in hollowed areas. Garnish with parsley. Cut into 2-inch pieces.
