  1. Wash cucumbers and remove ends with a knife. Cut cucumbers into long thin ribbons using a mandolin or a wide vegetable peeler. Set aside.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir well to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Lay out cucumber slices. To one end of cucumber ribbon, add a 1 oz. scoop of tuna salad. Roll up the cucumber around the tuna salad and secure with a toothpick. Repeat process until all tuna salad is used (4-6 rolls per person). Keep cold until serving time.
