Or you can always write your own snippet function and hook it up to the Search API. Then you can do whatever you like.
The basic pattern for specifying your own function is described in the section immediately following the one that Shannon mentioned, titled "Specifying Your Own Code in transform-results".

Subject: Re: [MarkLogic Dev General] Search API snippet
Pradeep, as a work-around to the undesired behavior, I modified asc:transform-result in standard.xqy, to inspect each result, and if the query is found only in an element that contains metadata, which is unsuitable for display in results, then my preferred element is returned instead (conveniently in this case each document in the TEI data contained an abstract element, so I chose it)--I know it's not recommended to use static snippets, but it was better than the default in the current release, and it works especially well when you're drilling down a large dataset using faceted range constraints (another instance in which the default snippets aren't useful). You might take this approach of transforming snippets in your response output whether or not you're using Application Builder.
