Helpful Tip:


Make-Ahead Tip: The unfilled cucumber cups can be made the day before, arranged on damp paper towels, covered tightly, and refrigerated.

How to make it

  1. Using a fork, score the sides of the cucumbers to create decorative stripes. Slice the cucumbers into 3/4-inch-thick rounds.

  2. Using a teaspoon or melon baller, scoop a 1/3-inch-deep well in the center of each slice.

  3. Spoon 1/2 tablespoon of hummus into each cucumber cup, mounding it slightly. Sprinkle the tops with the scallions and bell pepper. Makes 32 cups.
