In a 2-quart bowl: Combine: 2 cups cold flaked fish as halibut, bass, etc. (or use canned tuna or salmon), 1/2 cup celery in 1/2-inch pieces and all the chopped cucumber scooped from "boats".

Arrange on dinner or large salad plates. Place the cucumber boat on the lettuce. Heap the fish mixture to fill the cucumber shells. Cut 1 slice American cheese in half diagonally to form a "sail". Place in the center of mixture, narrow edge upright. Cut a tiny banner of 1 pimiento piece 1/2 inch x 1 1/2 inches and pin it to the center of narrow side of cheese with a piece of toothpick.
