Maybe it is the wannabe-japanese in me, but I'm a little hooked on cutesy cutting of vegetables. I'm sure there is a name in Japanese for this phenomenon.
Cucumbers have been on special at hte grocery store for 99 cents each so I've been eating these up!
1. Wash cucumber.
2. Use a vegetable peeler to cut strips of peel off (and discard/compost/feed to dog!).
3. Now slice cross ways.
I love the poker-chip pattern around the edge. And it keeps snacking on cukes from feeling like a whole lot of peel-chewing.
These make a pretty and delish snack for work. Or I like them with a sandwich instead of chips!
