I saw this just recently in Cuisine at Home magazine. Two of my favorite flavors in the world, crab salad and cucumbers! Very tasty and very pretty, and a real company pleaser. I hid 3 away on a lovely dish while I charged up my camera battery, but someone found them. :( Be sure to use the English cucumbers because of their seedless, uniform shape and tender skin. These would also be very good with shrimp. I made them up about 1 hour ahead, tented them with toothpicks and plastic in the fridge, then served them on lettuce leaves. YUM!
