Prepare the Salad
Wash and dry cucumbers. Using a vegetable peeler, shave cucumbers into wide ribbons. Discard the first slice that is the peel. Add to a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, whisk red onion, vinegar, olive oil, honey, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Pour dressing over cucumbers and refrigerate for two hours to allow the flavors to meld.
When ready to serve, drain the juice.
Prepare 12 mini martini glasses on a platter and roll each cucumber ribbon to form a circle. Place into glasses one at a time until full. Sprinkle with dill and serve with mini plastic forks.
