By JULIE BRINKLEY


Picture yourself snacking on these healthy turkey and cheese cucumber rolls while you are poolside with friends.


They are tasty and guilt-free. What could be better than that?

WHAT’S IN IT


3 ounces ripe avocado


1 garlic clove


2 tsp. lime juice


¼ tsp. salt


¼ tsp. pepper


Two 4-oz. cucumbers


6-oz. low sodium sliced turkey breast


4-oz. low fat cheese


2 tbsp. fresh parsley

HOW TO MAKE IT


In a small bowl, mash the avocado with a fork. Add minced garlic and fresh lime juice. Season with sea salt and pepper to taste.


Mix until well combined.


Using a peeler or mandolin, slice the cucumber into equally thin strips.

Place about 12 cucumber strips next to each other, on a flat surface, such as a cutting board.


Spread 4 tbsp. mashed avocado evenly over the slices. Then add slices of turkey and cheese.


Starting at one end, tightly roll all of the cucumber slices into one long "sushi" roll.

Using a sharp knife, cut the roll into individual servings as shown in the photos. Secure with

a toothpick and place on a serving platter.


Repeat with the remaining cucumber strips.


Sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley and serve immediately.
