  4. Once ready to assemble, drain off any excess water from the cucumber ribbons and carefully pat dry with the paper towels.
  5. Add the cucumber ribbons to a large bowl, with kitchen sheers cut up the ribbons to be make it easier to eat.
  6. Add the onions and fresh mint and drizzle the dressing over top.
  7. Toss well to combine and evenly coat the cucumbers with dressing.
  8. Transfer to a serving platter, top with chopped olives, a bit more fresh mint and hemp seeds.


If you don't have a spiralizer, you can also make ribbons with a vegetable peeler or slice the cucumber thinly with a mandoline or knife.
