Friends, I have a confession to make: I’ve never met a cucumber salad that I didn’t like. It’s true! In fact, I may be a little bit obsessed with cucumber salads. After all, who doesn’t love a salad that doesn’t get soggy with time?

From my thin and crispy Creamy Cucumber Salad, to my nostalgic Armenian Cucumber & Tomato Salad, cucumber salad recipes are my favorite, particularly in the summertime. Not only are they cool and refreshing, but cucumbers are packed with water, making them hydrating for the body. And what happens when we get in more hydration? Our skin begins to GLOW. And I don’t know about you, but I am all about having glowing skin, all summer long. No makeup needed!

This salad recipe came from the amazing Rachael Kirkconnell who recently took TikTok by STORM with this creation. As soon as I saw her recipe, I knew that I had to try it out. And truth be told, it may just be my favorite cucumber salad recipe yet.

So whether you’re looking to have glowing skin this summer, or are just looking for a delicious recipe that comes together in just 5 minutes, then I’ve got you covered with this recipe! It’s quick, it’s simple, and it’s sure to make you glow from the inside out.

You Only Need 5 Ingredients to Make This Viral Salad

Would you believe me if I told you that you only need 5 ingredients in order to bring this viral salad recipe to life? It’s true!

  • Persian Cucumbers: I love using Persian cucumbers in this recipe, because they are smaller and crunchier than traditional cucumbers! Plus, they’re a tad sweeter, which adds the perfect flavor to this recipe.
  • Mini Sweet Peppers: These mini peppers are sweet, crunchy, and delicious. They’re not super spicy, but they pack tons of delicious flavor into this recipe!
  • Miso Ginger Dressing: The miso ginger dressing is what truly takes this recipe to the next level. You can definitely use a store-bought dressing (this one from Amazon is absolutely delicious!) Or, if you want to take this recipe to the next level, try using my Easy 5-Minute Carrot Miso Ginger Dressing.
  • Everything But the Bagel Seasoning: This simple seasoning is packed with flavor to take your salad to the next level! I get mine from Trader Joe’s, but you can also get it in bulk off of Amazon.
  • Chili Crunch: If you haven’t tried a chili crunch topping yet, then what are you doing!? This delicious seasonings adds the perfect amount of heat to this recipe, and is buildable, so you can truly add as much as you’d like, depending on how spicy you like it!
