This is a Great Snack for an Ocean Theme plus, it would make a perfect party idea.

Cut 3 of the cucumbers in half lengthwise, and scoop out the seeds with a spoon and set aside.

Using a sharp knife or mandolin, cut very thin slices of cucumber lengthwise off the whole ones. You need to take a few slices off first to get to the inner part so there is only skin on the outsides of the slices. These will be the sails.

Cut small matchstick size pieces of carrots, but make them 3-4” long.

Now cut 2 tiny holes in the end of each cucumber slice sail, and insert the carrot. The cucumber will curve out on one side to look like a sail.

Optional Addition to your boat snack

This part is great to display at a party, but I would not use a small toothpick (shown above) to give to a young child. Using the cheese and the pepper, cut little triangles for the flags at the top of the sails. These will be about 1-2” in size. Next, Break a small end of a toothpick off and attach the flag to the top of the carrot so it looks like a flag flying.

Fill your boats with dip and attach your sail by sticking a toothpick in next to the carrot and pushing this into the back part of the cucumber boat.
