Happy 4th of July everyone! Now that I’m in the working world and no longer enjoying entire summers off the federal holidays really are appreciated. When I looked at the calendar and saw that this year the 4th fell on a Wednesday I was a tad disappointed – a day off in the middle of the week – what can you do with that? Fortunately, the president of my company took pity on our poor hardworking souls and gave us Thursday and Friday off. So the one day holiday has turned into a 5 day getaway!

What a perfect opportunity to get out of hot and sticky DC and spend some quality family time up in the suburbs of Massachusetts. Finally the summer grilling can begin (no grills allowed in the apartment) and today I’m serving up grilled swordfish kebabs and grilled chicken thighs.

While the grill is heating up I’ve got a simple appetizer recipe to share with you. Gluten free, low carb and full of smooth fresh flavors  these roll ups are sure to impress. Easy to throw together for a party or if some unexpected guests pop in. Feel free to change the quantities of the ingredients to your liking, the recipe is simply a guideline.

How are you spending the day? What are some of your favorite July 4th appetizer recipes?

    You rolled them in the turkey. Can’t believe it took me awhile to figure that one out. DUH! That’s a great idea!

    • Vicky says

      Haha yep they’re just rolled in the turkey slices. It makes for a great snack! Especially if you’re trying to cut down on carbs.

    I love this recipe. It is the perfect low carb appetizer or lunch option. Great idea using the turkey as the outer shell of the wrap. I think I might make my own version on my blog Sugar Free Chic.
