So this is super easy and refreshing. I love cucumbers. Anything with cucumber seems so refreshing to me. I really enjoy sushi as well and have not eaten as much of it because of the rice. Let's put it this way- sushi is my cheat meal. Its one of my favorites.
Here is what you do for your no-carb, no worries refreshing Sushi.
Sliced Avocado (about half)
Small long slices of carrots
1 long Green Onion
Smoked Salmon - 4 oz package (I use Blue Circle Foods Smoked Salmon)

Cut the cucumber in half (keep the ends on)
Take a sharp knife- I used a steak knife and cut out all of the seeds. Discard all seeds
Put the long slice of cucumber and green onion first
Start "stuffing" the cucumber with the avocado on one side...this going to get messy. I have to use the end of a spoon to get it all to the bottom
Stuff the cucumber on the other side with smoked salmon.
Do this on both cucumber halves.
Put in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes. This lets everything "rest" and help not fall apart for cutting
I have served this both with skin on and skin off. If you want to take the skin off, take it off now with a slicer. It is harder to handle the cucumber with it off.
Slice from the open end of the cucumber on down. Add the salt and dill at the end when ready to serve. This is great for your meal or a nice simple appetizer.
