These fun, fresh cucumber roll-ups are sure to brighten up any table. Both kids and adults will enjoy a new take on traditional veggies.


  • 1 cucumber
  • a vegetable peeler
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup of matchstick carrots
  • a bell pepper (or two, if you want varied colors)
  • some optional herbs


  1. Soften cream cheese to room temperature and mix with a spoon to soften.
  2. Wash and dry your cucumber. Using a vegetable peeler, slice into really thin strips (thinner cucumbers work best).
  3. Cut bell pepper into matchstick pieces. I used a quarter each of red pepper and yellow, but you could just use one or the other if it’s easier.
  4. Spread a thin layer of cream cheese down each cucumber slice. On one end, place a handful of carrots and bell pepper, along with fresh herbs if desired (optional).
  5. Roll up and serve!
