Sometimes cucumbers can be bitter. If you peel your cucumbers, most likely you won't have that problem. If you choose English cucumbers (the ones wrapped) or the small Persian ones they usually don't need to be peeled. When creating this salad, I don't seed my cucumbers, but if you want to, an easy way to do it is simply slice the cucumber length ways and use a spoon to scoop out the seeds.
