  • 3-4 mini cucumbers sliced
  • 6-7 mini bell peppers organge, red, yellow (sliced)

  • 1/4 cup Ginger Sesame Dressing* (I used Braggs)
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons Everything But The Bagel Seasoning (add more to taste)

  • Chill for 30 minutes before serving. Lasts up to 4 days in the refrigerator.
  • OPTIONAL: Serve over 1 cup of cottage cheese if not dairy-free for a high-protein snack!


Expert Tips

  • Feel free to use any Asian sesame dressing you like. There are tons of options at most local grocery stores. I used Bragg’s.
  • Everything But the Bagel seasoning is carried by Trader Joe’s. If you don’t have a store near you, check your local supermarket, as many brands make similar alternatives. 
  • Adjust seasonings, chili oil, and dressing to taste. It’s easier to add more, so start off with less and add as you taste.
  • To make this a stand-alone meal, add cooked chopped chicken breast or rotisserie chicken and/or your favorite cooked pasta shape. Bow tie, macaroni, fusilli, or penne would work really well!

Serving Tips

  • Serve chilled alongside your favorite main dish. This viral TikTok cucumber bell pepper salad would go great paired with my Pulled Pork Sliders, these Sticky Asian Chicken Wings, or a juicy Burger!
  • Because this recipe is quick and easy to make ahead of time, it makes the perfect summer potluck dish. Bring it to any of your summer gatherings. 

Storage Tips

  • Store your TikTok cucumber bell pepper salad in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. Give it a good stir and serve chilled!
