Salad #2 - Cucumber Salad

3 medium-sized cucumbers
1 c. diced tomato
1/2 c. diced celery
Salad dressing
1 pimiento

Peel the cucumbers, cut them into halves, and with a small spoon scoop out the cucumbers in chunks, so
that a boat-shaped piece of cucumber that is about 1/4 inch thick remains. Dice the pieces of cucumber
which have been scooped from the center, and place the cucumber shells in ice water so as to make them
crisp. Mix the diced tomato, celery, and cucumber together, and just before serving drain them carefully so
that no liquid remains. Mix with salad dressing, wipe the cucumber shells dry, fill them with the salad
mixture, and place on salad plates garnished with lettuce leaves. Cut the pimiento into thin strips, and place
three or four strips diagonally across the cucumber. Sufficient to Serve Six
