I used English cucumbers but you can use regular or Persian cucumbers as well. Persian cucumbers would be best as they are less watery than regular cucumbers. You’d need about 8 Persian cucumbers and 2-3 regular cucumbers if you were going to substitute.

Here’s a little shortcut, use kitchen shears to chop fresh herbs. I started using them to chop up my son’s food into bite size pieces so that he could eat without choking. It was so easy that I started looking around the kitchen to see what else I could cut up and settled on herbs. It’s so nice to be able to just grab a bunch of dill and start cutting. I use Kitchen-Buddy kitchen shears from Amazon. They are very sharp which is perfect. The only downside is that they don’t come apart to wash and don’t go in the dishwasher. I usually only use these shears for cutting herbs so that’s not much of an issue. However, they are heavy duty and could handle much bigger jobs.
