Cucumber Boats Garnish Step by Step Instructions
English hothouse cucumber

English (hothouse) cucumber

Peggy Trowbridge
English cucumbers, also called hothouse cucumbers, are best for this garnish. If you use standard cucumbers, look for a straight cucumber of a thin and uniform diameter. Wash and dry cucumber.

You will need:
• English (hothouse) cucumbers.
• Sharp paring knife.
• Vegetable peeler.
• Your choice of filling for the cucumber boat cavity. Suggestions include carrot flowers, cherry tomatoes, parsley, shredded cheese, condiments, and dips.
