Yield: 1 to 2 servings

 

Ingredients      

2 slices whole grain white bread

1 teaspoon low-fat ranch dressing

2 slices ham

2 slices baby Swiss cheese

Cheese, cut into 2-inch by ¼-inch strips

1 tablespoon shredded carrot

2 sweet baby pickles

 



Directions

1. Trim crust from bread. Place both pieces of bread side-by-side on a work surface, with one slice overlapping the other. Press bread slices where they overlap to fuse together. Spread bread with ranch dressing.

2. Layer bread with ham, Swiss, and carrots.

3. Place two pickles horizontally and end-to-end at bread edge closest to you. Roll bread from bottom up to make tight cigar-shaped roll.

4. Cut roll into sushi-sized pieces approximately 1 inch in length.

5. Serve!
