Ingredient Notes & Substitutions
Zucchini. Small or medium-sized zucchini is the best to use in this recipe. If the zucchini is too large, the seeds may be big and make it difficult to roll the zucchini.
Substitute zucchini with yellow summer squash or use a combination of both
Guacamole. You can use your favorite guacamole recipe or store-bought. For best results, the guacamole should be fresh. Here is my easy recipe for homemade guacamole.
Make Ahead Instructions
Zucchini roll-ups can be assembled ahead of time, but they should be made no more than 2 hours before serving to maintain the fresh vibrant color. Once they are made, store them in an airtight container until it's time to serve them.
TIP! Add a splash of lemon juice to the guacamole to prevent it from browning.
How to Store Refrigerator Zucchini Pickles
Store your zucchini pickles in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
Freezing is not recommended
Zucchini rolls are fragile, and as a result, leftovers will not last much longer than one day. If you have leftovers, place them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a day.
Please note that the leftover appetizer rolls may be watery due to the moisture content in the zucchini.
