Easy After School Snack: Cucumber "Snakes"

By bellalimento |

We’re serving up another after school snack idea. This is not only fun but healthy. I have to admit I’m not a fan of snakes. In fact I’m terrified of them but much to my dismay my boys seem to be attracted to them not to mention we have a lake in our backyard which is quite the snake magnet. But I’m willing to make these cucumber “snakes” if it means they’ll eat more veggies. It’s a win win! For even more dipping fun we serve them with a side of baby carrots.

Cucumber “Snakes”

What to do:
1. Cut your cucumber slices in half. Arrange 8 pieces per “snake”. Place an olive/caper for the eye. Place slice of bell pepper for tongue. Continue until desired amount of “snakes” are made.
