Summer is in full swing and I wanted to come up with one more no cook dish for the bite size appetizer theme. We love cucumbers and also love the Mediterranean flavors. I had a box of roasted red pepper hummus in the refrigerator and that gave me an idea to use it up in the cucumber rolls. The rolls were very refreshing and were perfect for the hot summer day.

I also added some chopped pickled jalapenos inside the rolls for heat and that was something my older one really liked. This is my last recipe under the bite size appetizer theme.

It really helps to slice the cucumbers and then lay them on a paper towel for few minutes before rolling. This made the cucumbers a little dry and that allowed rolling easily. Also I would recommend refrigerating the rolls if not using right away.
