Now we're going to peel and cut up our cucumbers you want to select a cucumber that has a nice bright color and pretty firm to the touch doesn't really yield and doesn't have a lot of puckered shivered places it should have a pretty even coat not to many of these bumpy guys. And for this kind of salad I like to peel like to peel up some of the skin and I want to try to cut my cucumber into pretty thin slices so it really gets coated by the dressing thoroughly. It can really absorb some of that yummy salty kick so peel it cut it into halves length wise and to seed it we're just going to take our knife and make some little v's into the center to get rid of most of the seed, you really don't need to get rid of all of them but it is nice if you do get rid of most of them. And then we'll slice the cucumber into really fine thin little slices you want usually one cucumber works really well, if you got a lot of hungry people you might want two. And that cut up cucumber will go into our bowl and then you also grade just a little bit of fresh organic carrot onto there and you really don't want a lot it's really just for color and a for little extra crunch you want to grade about 1/3 of a normal large carrot in there, and the finer you cut it the nicer it will look. And once we have all our cucumber and carrot in there we'll throw in our dressing and we'll let it marinate in the fridge about 2 or 3 hours.
