Canadian lunch-Cucumber Meat rolls

I had a lovely time making these cucumber meat rolls with my son, as part of our school lunch from different countries project [ ]. This time the country chosen was Canada. We used some delicious Montreal smoked meat as the filling for the cucumber rolls. My son was really enthusiastic about the rolls with carrots slices and using a round piping tip, punched out the yellow pepper circles. He then had lots of fun eating the yellow peppers with all the holes in them. Served with a multigrain cheese bun, these rolls make a balanced meal. However, they could be served as an appetizer as well.




1 cucumber

3-4 slices of deli meat

Baby carrots, thinly sliced

Yellow pepper



  1. Cut the cucumber into 3 inch segments. Using a paring knife, remove the seeds in the middle.
  2. Roll the 1 slice of deli meat very tightly. Insert into the hollowed cucumber.
  3. Slice the cucumber about 1/8 inch in thickness.
  4. Decorate with thinly sliced baby carrots or any other vegetable of your choice.
  5. Using a the tip of a round piping tip, punch out little circles from the yellow pepper. Use the pepper to garnish the tops of the cucumber.
