Why You’ll Love Cucumber and Avocado Rolls

These cucumber and avocado rolls are not only easy to prepare, but they are incredibly versatile. You can practically make them with any toppings or fillings you like.

Make them vegetarian by omitting the meat and adding extra veggies 🥕, or vegan by also subbing out the mayo for a vegan-friendly alternative. Experiment with different spreads and pack them with any lunch meat you like. Seriously, sky’s the limit.

You can also make these kid-friendly 👦 by rolling up your child’s favourite meats, veggies and spreads and cutting them into smaller bite-size pieces. Scroll down for some more variations and substitutions!

How to Prepare Cucumber and Avocado Rolls

🔪 Peel the top of the cucumber until it is even, and start to make strips with a Y-peeler or a potato peeler. Spread out the strips on a paper towel, as cucumbers have a lot of water content.

🥒 Arrange the cucumber strips in a row making sure they overlap each other slightly. Pat them down with a paper towel, removing any excess moisture.

🍴Then, you can add your favorite fillings. For example, you can mix homemade mayo with some sriracha and spread a thin layer on top of the cucumber strips. You can also use plain mayo, hummus, ranch, or any other spread of your choice.

🥑 Add slices of turkey breast and a few slices of avocado. Feel free to season your avocado with some salt and pepper if needed.

😋 Gently roll it up and cut into bite-size pieces. You can also secure it with toothpicks for ease and make cuts between each toothpick. Enjoy!

Nonna’s Tip 🥒

I used “Everything but the Bagel” seasoning on top, but it’s completely optional. You can also add texture by sprinkling some toasted sesame seeds, chopped nuts, or crispy fried onions on top.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
