What is a cucumber roll?

A cucumber roll up is where you take a thin slice of the cucumber and roll something up in it. For example, what I used, lunch meat and Ranch dressing. The possibilities are endless. You could use tuna, cheese, just about anything that will roll up inside the slice.

How do you make thin sliced cucumbers?

Dilemma.  How to slice them so thin? Some recipes call for using a vegetable peeler to slice these. UPDATE:  Thanks to a lovely visitor, she recommended a mandolin. UPDATE UPDATE: I sliced the above with a mandolin/slicer. So must easier. May I recommend getting one if you don’t have one.

Do you need to peel the cucumber for the Cucumber Roll Up?


No. In fact, the skin has the most nutrients. So, if you can stand eating the skin, do so. Check out this article – Cucumbers: Health Benefits & Nutrition Facts.

I got to thinking while writing this, that my Veggie Dip made with Essential Oils would have been good in lieu of the Ranch Dressing. Double healthy right there.

Like cucumbers and popcorn chicken…try this salad!

  1. You could probably use a mandolin on the thinnest setting too 🙂 going to try with turkey/prosciutto and brie! Thanks for the idea!!

  2. What a great idea instead of using bread! These would be perfect to serve at a party.
