I have no special tools to cut a spiral of cucumber, carrots, etc. for decoration. And I did it with a knife and skewers. Very simple!
So, we will need a cucumber or two, skewer, sharp knife.
To pierce the cucumber lengthwise with a skewer, starting at the end begin to rotate the knife around the cucumber in a spiral, reaching skewers, get neat coils.
If you try, then the turns will be thin, but I have yet to receive the only way.
Pulling the skewer, we get a spiral.
As it turned out, and without special tools you can quickly make a decoration for dishes.
