- 5 English cucumbers, each about 10 ounces and 11 inches long, ends trimmed
If cucumbers are waxed, peel them. Cut each crosswise into five 1 3/4-inch pieces. With a small melon baller, carefully scoop out the insides of each piece, leaving a 1/4-inch border around the edge and a 1/2-inch border on the bottom.
