Cucumber Rolls

At first glance these eye-catching chile peppers look like red jalapeno. However, they have a different flavor and are less meaty than Jalapeno. Red Fresnos are great roasted and added to salsas. Try grilling them alongside your steaks or in kabobs.

When roasting these they should char, blister, and become soft. Try substituting these in your favorite chile recipes.

1 long cucumber
3.5 oz feta cheese
1 red chilli, fine chopped
1/2 teaspoon parsley, fine chopped
1/2 fresh coriander, fine chopped
1 garlic clove, very fine chopped
black pepper
2 tbs mayonnaise, creme fraiche or natural yogurt


Slice cucumber for a long pieces (the easiest way to do it is use mandolin)

In a bowl mix together feta cheese with creme fraiche (or mayonnaise yogurth). Add herbs, spices, garlic and chilli to feta. Mix well.

On each cucumber slice put a teaspoon of feta. Scroll it (roll it over onto itself like a pinwheel.) Use toothpicks to keep rool shape.

Serve it with grilled meat.
