Place carrot ribbons in a medium bowl filled with ice water for 20 minutes or until curled.
Toss together spring mix, chopped cucumber, croutons, and shredded Parmesan cheese in a large bowl; set aside.
To assemble, place 4 carrot curls over the rim of one side of each 6 (16-oz.) salad serving bowls; place 4 remaining carrot curls over the rim on the opposite side to create spider legs. Add salad mixture to bowls.
