MEDITERRANEAN CUCUMBER SUSHI

Prep Time 20 minutes
Resting time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 20 minutes
Course Appetizer
Servings 12

Ingredients
  

  • 2 large cucumbers
  • 2 Tablespoons hummus
  • ¼ cup feta cheese crumbled
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped kalamata olives
  • 3 Tablespoons red bell pepper diced
  • Fresh dill sprigs or parsley sprigs
  • Lemon wedges

Instructions
 

  • Set about 4 paper towel sheets on the counter. Holding the cucumber the long way, use a vegetable peeler and peel long strips (place the initial strip of the cucumber skin aside, as it will not work for the rolls), placing each one on the paper towels. Once you hit the seeds, repeat on the other side of the cucumber. Complete the process with the second cucumber (saving the insides of the cucumber for your next salad or dip!). Let the cucumber strips drain on the paper towels to remove the excess moisture for at least one hour.
  • Using the back of a teaspoon, spread a thin layer of the hummus onto each cucumber strip. Lightly sprinkle the feta, olives, and red pepper. It is truly a think layer, as otherwise you will lose most of it when you roll up the strip!
  • Carefully and tightly roll each strip. Place on a serving dish. Place a small dill or parsley sprig into each roll. Sprinkle with freshly squeezed lemon juice and serve.
