Paleo Ham & Green Onion Roll-ups

The saltiness of ham and the tangy crunch of green onion make these roll-ups the perfect appetizer for your next special event. Although traditionally made with dairy cream cheese, this recipe has been altered to use coconut-based cream cheese making it completely dairy-free!

  • 8 oz. dairy-free cream cheese
  • 1 tsp. dill
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 pound sliced, nitrate-free deli ham
  • 12 stalks green onion


  1. Allow dairy-free cream cheese to soften and come to room temperature on the counter for an hour or two before making the roll-ups.

  2. In a small mixing bowl, mix the dairy-free cream cheese, dill, onion powder, sea salt, and lemon juice. 

  3. Lay one slice of ham on a flat surface and smear about a tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture across the middle of the ham. Smear a small amount at the top of the slice of ham too.

  4. Lay one green onion across the middle of the ham slice. Fold the bottom of the ham slice up and over the green onion. Roll tightly up to the top of the ham slice, using the small smear of cream cheese at the top to hold the roll together.

  5. Repeat with rest of the ham and green onions. Refrigerate until time to serve. Serve whole or cut into smaller rolls, secured with toothpicks.
