Cucumber Sushi Rolls

  • Total Time: 20 min
  • Yield: 8 Cucumber Sushi Rolls (4 per serving) 1x



  • 2 large cucumbers, sliced into 2″ slices (should have slices 8 total)
  • small circle cookie cutter
  • 4 thin slices favorite sandwich filling (turkey, ham, use vegan versions too!)
  • 2 large slices cheese (I used deli swiss cheese)
  • 1/2 c. chopped lettuce
  • 1/2 c. shredded carrots
  • Dairy Free Ranch Dressing for dipping


  • Large cucumber, sliced into 1 1/2-2″ slices
  • small circle cookie cutter
  • favorite sandwich filling (turkey, ham, cheese, use vegetarian versions too!)
  • chopped lettuce
  • shredded carrots

The idea for stuffing them is simple:

  1. For each cucumber slice, cut out the middles with the circle cookie cutter. You can save the insides for a salad, juice, or a smoothie for no waster.
  2. Place 1 slice of lunch meat on top of 1 slice of cheese. Add the 1 Tbsp. lettuce and 1 Tbsp. shredded carrots towards the bottom half of the meat and cheese layer.
  3. Tightly roll from the bottom up.
  4. Holding one end with your hand, slice the other end in 2″ slices so it will fit nicely on the inside of the cucumber.
  5. Place the filling roll inside the cucumber.
  6. Repeat for the remaining slices.


You can put 4 cucumber rolls into your kid’s lunchbox and save the other 4 for another lunch day. Will keep well in the fridge in an air-tight container for up to 3 days.
