Cucumber Cups

Look for cucumbers that are narrow, such as telegraph, seedless hothouse, and Japanese cucumbers, so that the cups will be only I or 2 bites.



  1. If the cucumbers are waxed, peel them.
  2. Cut each crosswise into five 3cm pieces.
  3. With a small melon baller, carefully scoop out the insides of each piece, leaving a ½ cm border around the edge and a ½ cm base on the bottom.
  4. The cucumber cups may be prepared up to 4 hours in advance, arranged on damp paper towels, tightly covered, and refrigerated.
