The easiest way to deal with the cucumbers is 2 fold.

Option 1 is to use a food processor with a slicing blade – it definitely makes quick work of it, but also means extra clean up…  For regular cucumbers, make sure to scrape out the seeds.

Option 2 is to use english cucumbers. No need to peel or scrape out the seeds.
