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.
