- 4 to 6 kirby cucumbers or a seedless cucumber, peeled
- 2 tablespoons butter
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1 to 2 tablespoons chopped mint
Run a good vegetable peeler down the sides of the cucumber, lengthwise to create long thin `strips; keep on turning the cucumber; you'll be left with an inner core which is basically seeds and which you should discard.
