Cucumber Crocodile


  • 1 carrot
  • 1 ¼ cucumbers
  • Toothpicks
  • Variety of cheeses
  • Fresh pineapple, cut into chunks, or 1 small can pineapple chunks
  • 2 cherry tomatoes


  • Cut a long strip from the carrot, if using, with a vegetable peeler. Cut this into a strip about ½ inch wide and cut along one side to form a serrated edge. These are the crocodile’s teeth. Cut a wedge from one end of the whole cucumber to make the crocodiles mouth. Insert carrot teeth, if using.
  • Cut the quarter cucumber into two 1-inch-wide slices, cut these in half, and then shape into feet with a triangle cut out of them. Attach these to the whole cucumber using toothpicks cut in half. Thread cheese and pineapple cubes onto several toothpicks and spear the ends into the cucumber. Cut a toothpick in half and use the two halves to attach the cherry tomatoes to for the crocodile’s eyes.
