  • Peel the cucumber in alternating strips to leave a striped look on the outside.
  • Slice the cucumber into ¼ to ½ inch slices and put on a plate.
  • Mix the strained greek yogurt or cream cheese with the dill, salt, and pepper.
  • Put a small amount of the yogurt mix on top of each piece of cucumber and top each one with a shrimp.
  • Serve immediately or keep in the refrigerator for up to six hours.


Strain yogurt by placing it in a cheesecloth or towel over a bowl for a few hours and use the part left in the towel. You can also use cream cheese, but this version has probiotics.
