the very first version of this i fell in love. i knew cucumbers were going to be one of my favorites. but it wasn’t quite right. then we removed some of the curled slices. then we removed some of the round slices. then we varied the thicknesses. then we added some peel but it was too dark. then we removed the peel but it was too bare. then we added a thin pickle-shaped slice angled across the middle. then we scootched a few pieces closer to the center. then it was just a little bit better than v.1. worth it? totally.
