“Spiced up goat cheese, wrapped in thinly cut strips of cucumber and drizzled with a tasty honey balsamic dressing. A wonderful appetizer or snack.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 ounces goat cheese
  • 2 tablespoons red pepper flakes, peperoncino flakes (more or less, depending on your ability to handle the heat!)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 large cucumbers, peeled and cut lengthwise into wide, thin strips
  • For the sauce
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 12 cups honey
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce


  1. Empty the cheese into a large bowl and press it into the shape or curve of the bowl.
  2. Add the olive oil, lemon juice and peperoncino flakes.
  3. Mix or knead the cheese, making sure to mix the ingredients well throughout the cheese. You should end up with a large ball of cheese.
  4. Form the cheese into a a bar and lay it out across the ends of the cucumber strips, lengthwise. Then roll the cucumber strips, with cheese inside, into a roll. You may have to press the cucumbers into the cheese to make them stick and compress it, this is ok.
  5. Refrigerate until you are ready to serve it.
  6. Now make your sauce.First add the honey to a large bowl. Then add the oil and soy sauce. Last, add the vinegar and whisk it until well mixed.
  7. When you are ready to serve, cut the cucumber by each strip. It should make a single chunk of cheese wrapped with cucumber strip. Then.
  8. drizzle the sauce around the plate, not too much but enough to dip inches.
  9. Enjoy.
