I love a good Greek salad. It is one of my favorite salads to make and to order when we dine out. When I saw Lotta Maddness’s recipe for Cucumber Feta Rolls on Tasty Kitchen, I immediately thought: Genius! Why didn’t I think of that! The rolls have all of the fabulous flavors of a Greek salad, but in a cute little cucumber roll. I knew I had to make them.

To make the rolls, you will need: an English cucumber, dill, sun-dried tomatoes, kalamata olives, Greek yogurt, feta cheese, lemon juice, and black pepper. Simple, right?

Using a mandoline (or a sharp vegetable peeler), slice the cucumber lengthwise into long thin strips.

I had so much fun making these rolls! And the best part, you get to eat them when you are finished playing! I loved the creamy Greek yogurt and feta filling. The kalamata olives, sun-dried tomatoes, dill, and lemon gave the rolls the perfect punch of flavor. The cucumber wrapped everything up nicely and provided a nice crunch. These Cucumber Feta Rolls make a great party appetizer. Not in the mood to party? Make them for yourself! I made them for lunch and served pita bread on the side. So tasty!

Looks delicious, I can’t wait to make this!

Heather L, just try it with some sour cream. My big fat Greek family has been making tsatsiki with sour cream long before Greek yogurt hit the market. This recipe looks like delish- I would add some garlic to make it authentic. Add a grandmother who calls you koukla and gives you wet kisses after eating the garlicky treats, and you’re totally there!

I’m dying to try these but I need a good suggestion for a Greek yogurt substitute first. I just can’t enjoy it no matter how much I *want* to like it. Mayo, sour cream, some kind of Kraft salad dressing?

What a great idea! Will have to try. I first learned of feta cheese as a child from my Greek grandparents when they served it with watermelon! The perfect compliment. So that’s what I always associate it with 50 years later.

I really like greek salad, so these would probably be very yummy! I like the fact that the roll up is actually a cucumber – seems like a healthy sandwich:-)
