Calories Per Serving


  • 3 large cucumbers 
  • 3/4 Cups Hood® Cottage Cheese with Cucumber and Dill
  • 1/4 Cup Hood® Light Sour Cream 
  • 1/4 Teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 3 dashes hot sauce (optional) 
  • 5 Tablespoons 50% Less Fat Real Bacon Pieces


Trim the ends from each cucumber.

Using a vegetable peeler, peel three evenly-spaced strips of peel from each cucumber.

Cut each cucumber crosswise into nine, 1-inch thick slices.  

To make cups, use a teaspoon to remove the seeds from the center of each piece of cucumber; avoid scooping through to the bottom.


Place cottage cheese, sour cream, black pepper, and hot sauce in a medium bowl and mix until well combined.  

Spoon equal amounts of the cottage cheese mixture into cucumber cups.

Sprinkle with equal amounts of bacon pieces.

Serve immediately or refrigerate.
