cucumber turkey and cheese sandwiches


  • 10 cucumber slices (70g)

  • 3oz (85g) “Hormel Natural Choice” smoked deli turkey (about 5 slices)

  • ¾ oz (21g) “Kraft” reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese


  1. Slice cheese into about ten 1-inch square slices.

  2. To assemble each sandwich, lay out 1 cucumber slice and top with 2 slices cheese and 1 slice of folded deli meat. Top with another cucumber slice. Repeat five times to use up all of the ingredients.

  1. Hint: if it’s easier, slice the cheese into 5 pieces rather than 10 and layer each cucumber sandwich with 1 thicker slice of cheese. Slice the cucumber on the thick side to make a sturdy base for the fillings!

  2. It’s best to eat these sandwiches within a few hours assembling (so the cheese doesn’t get soggy). If meal prepping for the week, measure and slice the individual ingredients and store in zip-top bags until ready to enjoy.
