Cucumber Ribbon Pinchos

Cucumber Ribbon Pinchos

I made a cute ribbon out of cucumber.

Ingredients: 6

Cucumber
1
Cherry tomatoes
3
Cheese flavored chikuwa
3

Steps

1. Sprinkle a cucumber with salt and roll it hard on a cutting board. Slice it very thinly using a vegetable peeler.
2. Make two cuts halfway through the slices that are a bit nearer to the ends than the 1/4 points, as shown in this photo.
3. Put the two cuts together like this.
4. Secure with a pick, and the ribbon is done.
5. Stuff a piece of cucumber in the cheese flavored chikuwa. Cut each one in half diagonally, and stick a pick-pierced cucumber ribbon on each piece. (You can use regular chikuwa and stuff them with cheese and cucumber instead!)
6. Add a cherry tomato decoration to make your pinchos even cuter.
7. I served them as hors d'oeuvres along with tomato bruschetta.
8. Please take a look at Recipe ID: 482998 "Party hors d'oeuvres Pinchos."

Story Behind this Recipe

The wavy ribbons I used in Recipe ID: 482998 "Party hors d'oeuvres Pinchos got a lot of great comments, so I made this.
