Salad Roll-Ups Lunch Box

This hearty lunch includes an Italian sub rollup, oil and vinegar blend, pickles, apple slices and chips.

What you'll need:

  • 4 slices each of genoa salami, mortadella, soppressata, pepperoni, provolone
  • Paleo lime mayo
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Avocado oil or olive oil
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Italian seasoning
  • Toothpicks


  1. Layer the meat slices from largest to smallest.
  2. Spread a thin layer of mayo on the stack, making sure to leave space at the top of the largest piece to keep it from squishing out when you roll up.
  3. Add a slice of provolone on top of the mayo, about halfway from the top. Add a small handful of lettuce to the lower half and top with desired toppings (optional).
  4. Starting from the bottom of the cheese, gently roll the stack, pushing in any fillings that find their way out.
  5. When you get to the end, secure the outer meat edges with a toothpick.
  6. To serve, pour 2 parts oil and 1 part vinegar into a small dipping ramekin. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning on top. Dip the roll-ups in the oil-vinegar spread.
  7. Store extras in the fridge, wrapped individually in plastic wrap, for up to a week.
