Healthy summer recipes, Cucumber & Herb & Tuna Avocado Salad

I love these two recipes! For the day of the week that I don’t eat meat the cucumber sandwich is great for lunch or dinner. I don’t eat bread more than two times a week. I generally don’t do well eating grains (even gluten-free).  I hope you enjoy these recipes.

Cucumber & herb sandwich

2 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill or herb of your choice (I use dill and rosemary)
Juice of 1 lemon
2 slices gluten-free bread
1/2 organic cucumber thinly sliced (I like mine thick)

Herbs from my garden


In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, herbs, lemon juice.

I put the cream cheese on both sides of the bread. Arrange the cucumber slices on top of the bread and wa la it is ready to eat.

    Like that the tuna avocado sandwich uses avocado instead of mayo! Great tip.

      Thank you Sue! I love avocado’s. Try them on your eggs, in a salad, and also great with fish.
