I love this cucumber sushi stuffed with red and yellow peppers, carrots and avocado. I like to offer a couple of dips (details below) for a topping which made it kind of fun too. You really can get creative with a rainbow of colors. I'm always thinking about the guests who are gluten and dairy intolerant when I'm thinking about appetizer combos, as well.
2 medium cucumbers, halved
1/4 avocado, thinly sliced
1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
2 small carrots, thinly sliced
FOR THE DIPPING SAUCE
1/3 c. mayonnaise
1 tbsp. sriracha
1 tsp. soy sauce
Using a small spoon (like tiny metal measuring spoon)remove seeds from center of cucumbers until they are completely hollow.
Press avocado into the center of cucumber, using a butter knife to press inside the cucumber.
Next, slide in bell peppers and carrots until the cucumber is completely full of veggies.
Make dipping sauce: combine mayo, sriracha, and soy sauce in a small bowl. Whisk to combine.
Slice cucumber rounds into 1” thick pieces and serve with sauces on the side. A simple soy sauce is an option too!
Tweak the amount of sriracha for desired spice—reduce sriracha if you don’t want it die-hard spicy! I also offered a hummus for those who aren’t spice or mayo fans. Options make it fun! AND I recommend your guests spoon the sauce over the piece sitting on a napkin or a plate so there’s less risk of the veggies falling out.
