This dragon carving gives playing with your food a decidedly more awesome flair. Perfect for older boys or teenage birthday parties, as well as for gatherings between gamers (yes, they eat vegetables too) this is fun, fast, and a great side for any number of dishes!

Cucumbers are the perfect shape from which to carve dragons, and you can likely get about three out of one long cucumber. Play around with leaving some peel on (if using English cucumbers) versus peeling the entire thing for dimension. You can use raisins for eyes, as well as a food-safe marker, poppy-seeds, black olive pieces, or anything else that strikes your fancy! This recipe works best with super-crisp cucumbers, so use produce you’ve bought or picked that day for the best results. Enjoy!
