Tzatziki Feta Cucumber Smoked Salmon Rolls Meze Recipe
Tzatziki Dip Recipe
- 1 ½ cups plain full-fat Greek yogurt (“Fage” or similar brand)
- 2 large cloves garlic, minced
- 1 large cucumber, remove seeds and peel
- 1/4 cup of crumbled feta cheese
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon dry dill
- Juice from one lemon
- 2 1/2 tablespoons Greek olive oil
- In a medium bowl, add the yogurt and garlic and mix together. Chill in the fridge for 3 hours.
- Peel the cucumber and don’t forget to remove the seeds! Grate it, place it in a strainer, and use your hands to squeeze out all the juice.
- Add the yogurt and garlic mixture to a large bowl. Stir in the vinegar, feta cheese, salt, oregano, dill, olive oil, and lemon juice.
- Once combined, add the grated cucumber. Mix all ingredients together and chill overnight until thick.
Prepare the rolls
- 2 English cucumbers
- 1 package of the smoked salmon by Kvaroy Arctic
- 1 cup of tzatziki dip sauce
- A handful of fresh dill
- Lemon sprigs to serve
- Prepare the smoked salmon and defrost according to packaged instructions.
- The best way to prepare the cucumber slices is to use a mandolin. If you do not own a mandolin, then you can use a sharp peeler to peel a long strip of cucumber. I take my English cucumber and cut off the ends, and then I cut it in half. Then I make approximately 1 inch to 4 cm in size. You want the cucumber slices to be thin so you can easily roll them up. If they are too thick they will break in half.
- Once the cucumber slices are done, run a lemon over the slices. Place a tablespoon of filling on the strip of the cucumber and spread out the filling evenly. Gently roll the cucumber from the bottom up.
- To serve: Before placing the roll on the plate, add a tablespoon of the sauce to the plate. This helps ensure the roll stays upright. Then serve with one salmon slice over the top. I like to serve with a lemon sprig and fresh dill.
