Cook's Note

Before slicing the cucumbers, score the skins vertically with a fork, but do not peel them. Try Kirby or Persian cucumbers if you can find them at your local grocery store or farmers market. They are smaller than regular cucumbers, and are very crunchy and mild in flavor. Perfect for salads!
