How to Dice a Cucumber

Consistency is the key to success when dicing cucumbers. Having uniform pieces makes dishes look more appealing and results in a perfect bite every time.

Learning how to dice a cucumber doesn’t take long, but there are a few things to consider to get an even dice and to be safe while cutting. For this technique, we used a 7" Santoku because the length of the blade is the right size for easily cutting the cucumber lengthwise. A chef knife would also work well.

When prepping cucumbers note that there is no need to peel them and, in fact, the peel is a good source of dietary fiber. However, if you’re keeping the peel on, be sure to wash the cucumber before preparing.

When selecting a cucumber at the grocery store or farmers market, look for those that are firm without blemishes or soft spots. Cucumbers also must be kept cool so they maintain their firm, crunchy texture.

How to Dice a Cucumber

  1. Using a 7" Santoku, cut the cucumber in half lengthwise.
  2. Use a Stainless Soup Spoon to scrape out the seeds.
  3. Lay the cucumber halves flat on the cutting board and cut lengthwise again to create quarters.
  4. Cut the cucumber crosswise to dice.
