1 clove garlic

4 oz Feta cheese

¼ cup plain Greek yogurt

1 ½ teaspoon apple cider vinegar, separated

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

¼ teaspoon dried oregano (if fresh use 1 teaspoon)

½ cup diced English cucumber

¼ cup diced Kalamata olives

1 Tablespoon minced parsley

1 teaspoon chopped mint

¼ cup diced tomatoes, seeded

2  8″ tortillas (plain or spinach)

 

In a food processor or blender, chop garlic. Add feta, yogurt, 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar, pepper, and oregano. Blend until smooth. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

In a separate bowl, combine cucumber, olives, parsley, mint, and tomatoes. Season with a pinch of salt and ½ teaspoon apple cider vinegar.

Lay one tortilla on a flat surface. Spread half the chilled yogurt/feta mixture on the tortilla evenly, leaving an edge. Scoop the cucumber salad over the yogurt mixture.

Roll tortilla tightly into a log. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap. Repeat with second tortilla and remaining ingredients. Refrigerate tortilla logs for at least 30 minutes up 2 hours.

Remove logs from refrigerator, unwrap. Place seam side down on a flat surface. Slice into small (1/4 in wide) pieces with a serrated knife. Trim ends of rolled tortillas for uniformity. Secure pinwheels with toothpick.

Arrange on platter or plate. Garnish with fresh parsley or mint.
