This fun and healthy recipe flips your sandwich inside out and skips the extra carbs altogether.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon Olive Oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1 tablespoon Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 1 large Cucumber, About 6 inches
  • 1/4 pound Turkey, thinly sliced
  • 2 slices Provolone Cheese
  • 2 pieces Red Leaf Lettuce
  • 1/2 cup Sweet Peppers, sliced
  • 1/2 cup Hot Peppers, sliced


1. Heat the oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the peppers and ½ teaspoon of the salt and cook until very tender, 7 to 10 minutes. Add the vinegar and cook another 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool completely.

2. Cut the cucumber in half lengthwise and scrape out the seeds along with some of the flesh to make room for the filling. Sprinkle the inside of the cucumber with the remaining ¼ teaspoon of the salt.

3. To assemble the subs, layer the turkey into the hollowed out insides of the cucumber, then top with the provolone cheese, the peppers, and finally the lettuce. Don’t be afraid to overstuff—this is key; as you eat the sub, the filling will condense and you don’t want to feel like you’re eating all cucumber. Place the top part of the cucumber over the lettuce and cut the sub in half.
