What you will need

1 large cucumber

How to cook

1

Peel cucumber

Remove the skin. If you don't have a Y-peeler yet, it's totally worth the 5 bucks.

2

Remove tips

Slice off a little chunk from each tip.

3

Slice Lengthwise

Slice cucumber lengthwise, right down the center.

4

Scrape out seeds

I like to use a small spoon to scrape out the seeds. You can definitely keep the seeds if you prefer, but I like to remove them in most cases because I prefer the crisp portion of the cucumber.

5

Slice lengthwise again

Slice the halves lengthwise again to yield long strips. Angle the knife slightly in order to maintain a uniform shape.

6

Dice

Collect the lengths of cucumber. Slice to yield small cubes.

7

Final product

Nice, uniform little cucumber chunks.
