Divide the cucumber into 5-6cm lengths, this makes it easier to handle. (Peel first before cutting if required).
Take one piece.
Place one cut end on to the board.
Slice off one of the curved sides to create a long flat surface.
Place this surface onto the board.
Then slice even width pieces along the length of the piece.
Place one piece flat side on board and then slice even strips of the required thickness.
Gather these strips and cut across to create a dice.
Repeat with all pieces.
