How to Present Stylish Cucumbers

You can of course serve cucumber as it is, but if you present it a little more decoratively, it will make your table look splendid.

Makes 2 Cook: 1 min

Ingredients

Cucumber 4 cm long

Method

1
Prepare two knives. One thin and narrow like a petit knife would be good. Cut the cucumber into 4cm lengths.
2
Use the petit knife to cut through the middle of the cucumber almost the whole way. Make sure the knife cuts straight so that the two halves are the same.
3
Use the second knife to cut diagonally until it hits the petit knife. The diagonal cut should extend above and below the petit knife incision.
4
Turn the cucumber over and repeat Step 3. Remove both knives.
5
Pull apart the two halves, they should separate quite cleanly. It's so easy! Maybe the cucumber would never know it's been cut in half, it's so painless.
6
Standing upright, it should look like this.
7
Make a typical Japanese izakaya tapas by putting a mixture of sour plum and bonito flakes on top, see this recipe.

8
Or how about a delicious and simple topping with Branston pickle?
