Peel a cucumber - all the way if you want, or just some. I tend to only peel about half of it. That sounds weird. What I mean is that I only take off about every other half inch of skin on the cucumber. Even that sounds weird. You'll just see in the pictures. Anyway, slice it in half and using a spoon scoop out all the seeds. Think ants on a log when you are doing this.
Mix together the cottage cheese, basil, salt and cilantro and fill the hollowed out area. I topped mine with the cracked pepper.
