Rinse and chop green onions.
Drain tuna. In a colander, drain and rinse beans.
In a medium bowl, mash beans lightly with a fork.
Add green onions, tuna, oil, mustard, salt, pepper, lemon zest, and 2 Tablespoons of the lemon juice to beans. Mix with a fork.
Fill each cucumber half with ¼ tuna mixture. Serve.
For a snack or party food, cut cucumbers into thick slices. Do not remove seeds. Place a dollop of tuna mixture on top.
Add chopped bell pepper or celery for extra nutrition and crunch.
Try canned salmon, packed in water, instead of tuna.
