Cucumber Roll Ups
  1. To create your cucumber rolls, you’ll need a mandolin or a wide vegetable peeler. Slice the cucumber lengthwise, into very thin slices.
  2. Because they are so thin, you’ll want to double-up the slices for each roll, like so
  3. Apply a thin layer of of hummus lengthwise down each slice.
  4. Then roll up, and top each roll with a dollop of tomato sauce!
  5. And to think, I was tempted to just have cucumber slices with hummus for lunch.
