Feta Cucumber Roll-Ups

Cucumber Feta Roll UpsIngredients

  • 2 medium cucumbers, seedless variety, if available
  • 6 ounces crumbled low-fat feta cheese
  • 3 tablespoons fat-free Greek yogurt (I use Fage brand)
  • 3 tablespoons finely diced sun-dried tomatoes without oil. Red bell pepper can be used as a substitute.
  • 10 large pitted Kalamata olives, drained  and patted dry from all liquid
  • 1/4 dried oregano or 1 tablespoon fresh, chopped
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped baby spinach leaves
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped red onion or scallion
  • Fresh basil leaves (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • Pepper to taste

How To

Thinly slice the cucumbers lengthwise. A mandolin makes slicing easier. If you don’t have, use a vegetable peeler. The slices need to be thin enough to roll-up. Pat dry all the slices with paper towel to remove any excess water. Set aside on a cutting board.

Combine feta and yogurt in a bowl. Use a fork to mash the ingredients to a paste like consistency. Add the sun-dried tomatoes, olives, oregano, lemon juice and pepper. Stir well.

Place 1-2 teaspoons of mixture at one end of the cucumber slice and roll up. Secure with a toothpick. Continue with remaining slices. Chill until ready to serve. Best to serve within 1-2 hours for maximum freshness and to ensure cucumber slices remain crisp.

Depending on thickness of cucumber slices, this recipe yields about 18 roll-ups.
