Ever since I learned that cucumber makes an amazingly refreshing sushi base, I’ve been brainstorming ways to make a fun take on traditional sushi. And after getting a mandoline slicer for Christmas this year, I knew just what I would make. This Greek Sushi! Rather than stuffing sushi fillings into the cucumber (like we did in the infamous Cucumber Sushi Rolls), today we’re thinly slicing cucumber, stuffing it with all the making for Greek salad, then simply rolling it up! No mess, no fuss, and so delicious.

Here’s the rundown of how we’ll make these tasty flavor bombs. Slice a cucumber thinly (long-ways) and pat dry with paper towels. While your slices dry a bit, make a “deconstructed tzatziki” of sorts (i.e. tzatziki minus the cucumber). We’ll spread our tzatziki onto the cucumber, top with bell pepper, onion, and feta, then roll up. Secure with a toothpick and garnish with fresh dill. It’s that easy, guys! I love these as a fun little side dish at dinner or as an appetizer when we have people over (and with summer just around the corner, I’m thinking we’ll be making a whole lot of this in the coming months!)

    Your nutrition information is wrong. When you add the protein, carbs and fat you should get 100%. Your nutrition information is just random percents.

    1. Sarah says:

      Hi Jacqueline, the information is actually not wrong. The percentages are % of your daily needs of each nutrient, not percentage of the meal (if that were the case, this would be the only meal you’d have to eat all day). For instance, this has 4g of protein which is roughly 8% of the total protein you need for a day (based on a 2000 kcal diet).

      You can also double check if you know the calories per gram of each macronutrient: (2g fat x 9 kcal) + (5g carbs x 4 kcal) + (4g protein x 4 kcal) = 54 calories per serving.

      I would never give random numbers and strive to include the most accurate information possible. 😀
