      DEC 12 Cucumber Feta Rolls [Holiday Recipe Exchange] Appetizers and Snacks, Holiday Recipes, Recipe Exchange | 22 comments I don’t know about the rest of you, but I really feel like the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday season snuck up on me this year. It seems busier than ever and I’m not sure why. Maybe because my kids are getting older, which means more to do, and there was a bit of traveling during November to keep us on our toes. I can hardly believe Christmas is less than 2 weeks away. I have two Christmas parties to attend this week! I’m all about keeping things simple this year. These Cucumber Feta Rolls are perfect for keeping Holiday entertaining simple. And they’re a snap to make when you use a Mandoline Slicer to slice up the cucumbers. I’ve never had or made Cucumber Rolls before making this recipe, but I loved the flavors of feta with kalamata olives and sundried tomatoes inside refreshing cucumbers. The filling is super quick to whip up, and could even be used as a dip to go with vegetables (think sliced cucumber rounds and bell pepper strips) and toasted pita chips.
