Spanish Cucumber Rolls
Greek-style probiotic yogurt
roasted garlic, mashed
roasted red pepper, finely diced
black olives (packed in water), finely diced
sliced almonds, toasted
parsley, finely minced
A tiny pinch of saffron
Pepper to taste
Fresh chive stems for tying rolls
Using a mandoline, slice the cucumber lengthwise into long, thin strips. Lay the strips on paper toweling to absorb excess moisture, set aside.
In a medium bowl, add yogurt, garlic, red pepper, black olives, almonds, parsley, salt, and saffron, then stir to combine. Season with pepper to taste.
To make rolls, place a rounded teaspoonful of the filling on one end of each cucumber strip, then gently roll and tie in place with fresh chive stems.
Chill, and serve.
