Recipe type: Lunch/Dinner
Phase: 3
Serves: 4 servings
  • one cucumber
  • juice from ½ a fresh lemon
  • 1 - 15oz can garbanzo beans - rinsed & drained
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • ½ medium red onion - minced
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley - finely chopped
  • 1 3 - 4oz jar pimentos - well drained
  1. In a food processor - pulse the drained beans and the parsley with the salt, pepper, and paprika, several times until the beans are coarsely ground and the mixture is well combined.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a mixing bowl and add the red onion, lemon juice, and pimento - mix well.
  3. Scrub the cucumber well and rinse it before drying it. With a vegetable peeler, peel stripes down the length of the cucumber all of the way around. Then slice off the ends and cut the cucumber into ¼ inch slices.
  4. Sandwich about one tbsp of the salad mixture inside two slices of cucumber to create each cucumber bite.
  5. Enjoy!
