Low Calorie Cucumber Rolls

Lose Weight By Eating
These cucumber rolls make great appetizers, snacks, and tea party nibbles!
At just 40 calories each they are healthy enough for any diet. And if you don't like ham, or Swiss cheese, see my healthy swaps above!
Special Tip: You'll want to slice the cucumber very thin, otherwise you may have a hard time rolling them. If you've never done this before I recommend getting an extra cucumber just incase you mess up.
