Cucumber Snake at Carnival

Submitted by IBIS Backwarenvertriebs GmbH from Aachen


Preparation time: 10 minutes

Serving size: 4


For the snake:

  • 1 large, long cucumber
  • 3 IBIS milk rolls
  • 250 g meat sausage in one piece
  • 4 narrow bottled tomatoes
  • 2 scoops of mozzarella (250 g)
  • 1 slice of salami
  • 1 pack of mini mozzarella balls
  • 2 small capers


  • Lettuce leaves to lay out
  • 2 toothpicks
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 250 g each green and blue grapes
  • 160 g IBIS Panecillos Tomato & Oregano (1 pack)


Wash and dry the cucumber. Cut off the round end for the head approx. 7 cm long, cut off the thinly tapered end for the tail approx. 5 cm long. Cut the cucumber centre into slices.

Cut the milk rinds, the meat sausage and the washed tomatoes into as many slices as the cucumber. Pat the mozzarella dry and also cut into the same number of slices.

Wash the lettuce leaves to lay out and pat dry. Halve, seed and clean the peppers, then wash and cut into strips. Wash the grapes, dab dry and pluck the individual berries from the stems.

Line a tray with the lettuce leaves. Cut the cucumber piece set aside for the head lengthwise at the green end. Roll the salami slice and stick it into the slit as a tongue.

Drain the mini mozzarella. Place 1 caper as a pupil on each mini mozzarella ball and pin it behind the snake's mouth as eyes with a shortened toothpick.

Place the snake's head on the plate and then place all the prepared and sliced ingredients alternately as the body. Place the end of the cucumber as the tail.

Arrange panecillos, grapes, remaining mini mozzarella balls and pepper strips around the cucumber snake.

Tip: You can extend the snake as much as you like and of course use your favourite snacks in the decoration.
