How to Make a Cucumber Sea Turtle Lunch

Right now we are in the middle of summer, and if your family is like my family, our kids are constantly asking for snacks. At this point, it might be hard to come up with snack time ideas but let me share one of my favorite things to serve this time of year...cucumbers! They are refreshing, tasty, and perfect in a sandwich. This is why I had to take my Red Sun Farms Mini Cucumbers and create a sea turtle food art lunch. It goes great on a plate or in a lunchbox if you want to make it during the school year.

This idea is perfect for a snack or a small meal. It's complete with a beach and an ocean as well as an easy to make sea turtle. I used Red Sun Farms Mini Cucumbers because the small size is perfect for this sandwich. My whole family loves these but the problem is once I start eating one, I might just finish the entire thing! They have a crisp, dark green, edible skin and are packed with flavor. So how do you create this seat turtle lunch? Read below to find out.

2. Place turkey and cream cheese inside of your favorite roll. Next arrange the head, flippers, and tail on a plate as shown in the photo above.

3. Place the bread roll on top for the shell and then dab cream cheese on each slice of cucumber. Stick those slices to the top of the bread roll to complete the shell.

4. To make the ocean, just use blue yogurt or white yogurt with a small amount of blue food coloring.

5. For the beach, pour some graham cracker crumbs in a small bowl and top with yogurt covered raisins for turtle eggs. When your family is eating the yogurt, they can mix in the graham cracker crumbs for some crunch!

So the next time your family asks for a snack, hand them a Red Sun Farms Mini Cucumber, or even make them this Sea Turtle meal and watch them have fun playing with their food!
