Ingredients

  • 2 english cucumbers
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup micro greens
  • 6 slices deli roast beef
  • 6 slices deli turkey breast
  • 6 slices pastrami
  • 2 tsp mustard
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes halved
  • 6 slices provolone cheese
  • 1/8 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp pepper or to taste

Instructions

  • Prepare the cucumbers: Cut your cucumbers length wise and scrape out the innards with a spoon. Just scrape out the slightly goopey seeds while leaving the interior of the cucumber relatively intact. Season the cucumber lengths with salt and pepper.
  • Build the cucumber sandwiches: Dollop and spread the mayo on one half. Top this half with the sprouts and meat. Dollop and spread mustard on the other half and top with the halved tomatoes and provolone.
  • Finish the sandwiches: Carefully sandwich the two halves together and slice your sandwiches up into little cucumber medallions. Top with more pepper to taste and serve!

Notes

This dish stores quite well in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 – 4 days. I don’t recommend freezing this dish as the cucumber will lose a lot of its structural integrity as it thaws. So just make this dish a few days ahead at most or enjoy fresh!
