How to make cucumber cups?

Choose small size cucumbers if available and slice into discs. If you like your cucumber cups to look extra cute, you can first make a pattern in the skin with the use of a vegetable peeler. Use a Parisian scoop or melon baller to scoop out a little of the centre of each disc without cutting a hole.
