Ingredients And Substitutions

These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Viral Pepper and Cucumber Salad. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.

The base of this salad is made with sweet tri-colored bell peppers. These are the small mini ones, not the large bell peppers. Although, i’m sure both would work!

I used Persian cucumbers for mine, but you can also use regular cucumbers.

For a bit of crunch, add on the chili oil onion crunch from trader joes. If you don’t have a trader joe’s near you, dont worry. Most stores sell it!

What really makes this dish special is the ginger dressing. You can use store bought or homemade, whichever you prefer.

Sprinkle on some Everything But The Bagel Seasoning to finish it off. This adds a savory flavor and a bit of crunch. Again, I get mine at Trader Joe’s, but most stores sell it!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use other veggies instead of the cucumbers and bell peppers?

Yes totally! Feel free to make it your own by adding in your favorite veggies.

Which ginger dressing did you use?

I used the toasted sesame ginger from Girards, I found it at my local Vons. It was really good! But if you can’t find that exact one, just check out the salad dressing aisle and look for anything that has ginger.

What is EBTBS?

Everything but the Bagel Seasoning! I get it at Trader Joe’s, but you can find it at most grocery stores!

A friend brought this to a party. I was hooked. Just made it for a party I’m going to.

So yummy!! I added shredded carrots, cashews and sometimes I’ll throw a salmon on top 🙂

Super great,colorful not get enough of this wonderful salad

Do you think almonds or sunflower seeds would work well in this? Sounds delish!

Can you make these in advance and keep them refrigerated or is it best to make fresh each time?
