- One long cucumber
- Sharp-pointed knife
- Slice cucumber lengthwise into thirds. Use the two outer portions, which have the fewest seeds.
- Place one portion on a cutting board peel side up. Take a diagonal slice toward one end and discard the end. Then, cut five thin slices so that they remain attached at one end. Cut the five slices from the cucumber, and then continue slicing the cucumber in the same way.
- Fold the tips of the free ends of the first, the third, and the fifth slice over and tuck them into the attached end.
