What’s The Deal With TikTok’s Popular Cucumber Salad?

When it comes to the tastiest salad recipes, selecting the right combination of ingredients ensures the dish is bursting with flavor. With this viral cucumber salad recipe, the subtle sweetness of Persian cucumbers and mini peppers work beautifully together and make for a nice riff on traditional cucumber salads (which typically feature onions).  Additionally, you can’t beat the crunchy textures these fresh vegetables add to the preparation, which makes this salad as fun to eat as it is tasty.

The chili onion crunch also enhances the texture of the salad, but more importantly, it lends a bit of spice to the dish. This zesty condiment features crushed chili peppers for the perfect amount of heat, as well as ingredients like dried onions, garlic, and bell peppers. As for the ginger dressing, it’s a tangy addition to an already delicious assortment of ingredients, and the ginger component imparts a bit of heat on its own thanks to its bright, peppery notes. You’re also free to add other ingredients to the recipe to make it your own. While the original recipe doesn’t call for it, the TikToker preparing the viral spinoff video also added vegan feta and chia seeds for a boost of protein.
