Manarola, Italy - My favorite town of Cinque Terre- It's in the province of La Spezia, Liguria, northern Italy. A unique place called 'Cinque Terre ' (which means Five Towns literally and this is one of the town, they are right next to each other).
I have to say right off the bat that this post was solely inspired by a photo I saw in the beautiful new cookbook by Mimi Thorisson, A Kitchen In France. In fact she posted the recipe recently on her (Vegan Casserole Cabbage Roll)
What a great appetizer! Roast beef and cheese sandwiched between cucumber slices. I might even put cucumber on the bottom, roast beef in the middle, and then top with cheese. Maybe a little mayo and mustard on the roast beef!
Sick of boring work lunches? Pack these Cucumber roll-ups with hummus and turkey or replace it with smoked salmon and cream cheese. Think I would use herbed ricotta or Greek yogurt with salmon instead of cream cheese.
