Paleo Recipes for Modern Day Cavemen

Cucumber, Turkey and Avocado Roll

Greetings from London! I have been traveling a bit and am reminded daily of how hard it is to eat well while on the road. This easy recipe is a great snack for any roadtrips or flights (especially with those dreadful airline meals!).  As simple as this recipe is, you’ll love the amazing combination of texture and taste!

Serves 2
2 cucumbers
8oz sliced turkey breast
2 ripe avocado

First, peel your cucumbers. I like a tiny bit of skin on mine for the added texture but you can do however you prefer. Then cut your cucumber in half (not lengthwise!).  Next, with a sharp paring knife, make an initial indentation lengthwise and start cutting the core of the cucumber out, creating a hollow log shape out of the cucumber.

Next, core and slice your avocado in quarters.  Once that is done – simple layer the turkey in the cucumber and place the avocado in the turkey. Voila! You have yourself a fresh, paleo snack that’s refreshing and delicious! Feel free to add some basil or other herbs to add more flavors. I keep this simple because my husband loves the basic saltiness of the turkey next to the crunchy cucumber and the creamy avocado.

  4. i just made this for lunch and it was AWESOME. wow!! a perfect flavor combo.

  5. Saw the photo above on Pinterest and made my own version with what I had on hand: cheese and avocado. Simple but still so yummy! I didn’t realize you had slit lengthwise so I just hollowed out by sticking a knife in the ends and then stuffed my filling inside, this worked well too. 🙂 Looking forward to trying this with turkey as you suggest! I’m going to link up to you on my blog and will be checking out more of your creations.

    Recipe sounds great. A alternative for the avocado could be a cheese spread (like e Laughing Cow or creme cheese) Will try a few variations.

    What do you do with the lushness of the interior you core out? Could you use an apple corer to clean out the center. Could you use the cucumber center with some mint and Greek yogurt and make Taziki sauce to stuff in with the turkey and avacado?

      I actually put extra cucumber bits in my water and added some mint. It’s great for a refreshing drink since my husband only drinks water at home and needs some variety! I tried using an apple core device but found that it took too much of the cucumber ‘meat’ so I ended up doing it manually by hand with a knife. The tatziki idea is fantastic! Unfortunately, we have reduced the dairy intake in our house otherwise I’d be making that all of the time!

    YUM! what a great “go to” snack! I’ve also made with smoked salmon, capers, red onion & avocado – delish!

    • Thanks Jessika! It’s one of the most simple recipes out there and I love the combination of textures and flavors. I’ll have to try your version too. Yum!
