Upgrade your old boring cucumber salad with this delicious and refreshing snake cucumber salad. This dish only takes a few minutes to make, and it makes the perfect entertainment for your family, especially your kids this summer!

I know the dish name sounds kind of scary… snake?! Yikes… But the good news is that there is no real snake involved in making this salad. This salad is vegan and gluten-free friendly.

Now, let’s talk about this salad. It is refreshing, crisp, and with a little heat. The sauce is light, yet it has a distinct sour flavor with a hint of sweetness, enhanced by the strong aroma of red chili pepper. If you can’t handle the heat, that’s okay. You can replace the red chili pepper with garlic.

2 Organic European cucumber (Recommend long and straight)

1 Fresh Organic fresh red pepper

1/4 Cup Balsamic vinegar

4 Organic goji berry (for the eyes)

1 Teaspoon Himalayan salt

2 Teaspoon Sugar ( I Recommend cane sugar or coconut sugar)

Directions:

  1. Spiral cut the cucumber with a knife or get a spiralizer (I prefer spiral cut with a knife because spiralizer will have a thinner cut and can break easily)
  2. Sprinkle some salt on top of the cucumber (a small pinch and try to sprinkle it evenly)
  3. In a tray or container, place the spiral cucumber-like shape of a snake
  4. In a small bowl, mixed vinegar with a pinch of sugar (based on personal preference ) and 1-2 fresh red pepper
  5. Pour the vinegar on top of the cucumber. If half of the snake is not in the vinegar, pour some extra vinegar until the snake is covered halfway.
  6. Place goji berry at the face
  7. Refrigerate the salad for 20-30 mins and then serve cold! (Recommend serving it cold)
