For this healthy appetizer, make sure you don't get paper-thin roast beef—it's harder to work with. Instead, ask at the deli counter for medium-thick slices (number 3 on most meat slicers).

  • 1 5-ounce container herb & garlic creamy cheese spread, such as Boursin

Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Place a slice of roast beef on a piece of parchment paper. Spread 1 tablespoon cheese over it in a thin layer all the way to the edges. Lay about ¼ cup watercress in a strip close to one long edge. Top the watercress with a few pieces of cucumber and bell pepper. Starting with the edge closest to the vegetables, roll the beef up sushi-style, using the parchment to help you roll it closed. Repeat with the remaining beef, cheese and vegetables. (See Tip.)
  2. Cut each roll crosswise into 6 equal pieces. Stand the rolls upright on a serving platter. Season with pepper.
