Salmon, Avocado, Cucumber Roll Ups

It’s going to avocado week here at RDelicious Kitchen. The California Avocado Commission is the sponsoring a recipe contest through Recipe Redux challenging members to create the perfect summer get-together dish using California Avocados.

Disclosure: By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by the California Avocado Commission and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.

As I was creating my first avocado recipe for the recipe contest, I thought of variation that sneaks in some vegetables. As a (soon to be) RD, I am always looking for ways to sneak in more vegetables into my recipes.
