Ingredients

  • 3 tortillas about 10 inches/25 cm, one more if they are smaller
  • 1/2 cucumber or 2 small Persian cucumbers
  • ½ cup cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons dill fresh and chopped
  • 2 green onions thin
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper or to taste
  • 3 dill sprigs for garnish, optional

Instructions

  • Chop dill and green onion finely. Mix with the softened cream cheese, salt, and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  • Peel the cucumbers. Cut into very thin slices (Note). Pat the pieces a bit dry with kitchen paper (especially if using an English cucumber).
  • Spread cream cheese on the tortillas. Cover with cucumbers, overlapping them a little to make them fit.
  • Roll up tightly. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 30 minutes to allow the cheese to set slightly.
  • Remove the plastic wrap. Use as many toothpicks or wooden picks as needed to secure the roll-ups; it depends on the desired thickness of the pieces. I cut 7 pieces out of each tortilla, so I had 21 in the end. Use a serrated knife to slice the roll between the picks.
  • Arrange on a platter and garnish with a few fresh dill sprigs (optional).

Notes

I prefer to use a mandolin; the slices will be perfectly thin and regular.
