- Using a spoon, scoop out the soft insides of the cucumber whose top has been removed.
- Add salad mixture to hollowed out cucumber.
- Place the flat "wing" that was previously the top of the cucumber crosswise across the top so as to create two wings.
- Take one of the 1/2 circles and place it perpendicular to the plane at the tail.
