cucumber dill chicken salad in tomato cups


while my parents were visiting over the weekend, ryan and i made cucumber dill chicken salad for lunch.  in order to save a few calories, we served the chicken salad in tomato cups instead of on bread.

the fresh dill adds such a nice flavor to this chicken salad, and the tomato cups act as perfect little edible bowls.
