Feta and Black Olive Tortilla Roll-ups

I love myself a popable bite!
These are addicting, consider yourself warned.

Who loves summertime? Here in the Midwest, we patiently wait for it to arrive and when it finally does we rejoice.

No more being trapped inside our homes! We open the windows, eat on the patio and let the kids stay up way past their bedtime just because the sun takes forever to go down. It really is a great time of year.

With summer comes fun, easy food. Backyard barbecues. Pool parties. Weekend lake getaways. Lunchtime picnics. And an overall just easy-going feeling towards all things food. It's rare I cook up a heavy pot roast in the crock pot in the summer, nor a big batch of chili. I save that stuff for the cold, winter months and break out the dips, salads and appetizers for summer.

We recently attended a going away party for one of my husband's co-workers. The hosts cooked up a feast of smoked ribeye steaks and roasted potatoes {seriously, one of the best steaks I've ever eaten} and us guests were asked to bring a side dish. Just like any normal summer barbecue.

Along with the chopped salad I brought I also threw together these quick and easy Feta and Black Olive Tortilla Roll-ups.

Let me start by saying I LOVE FETA CHEESE. In scrambled eggs, on salads, sprinkled on pizza. I haven't met a way I didn't enjoy it.


Slather it together with cream cheese, mayonnaise, loads of green onions and black olives and I'm pretty much set for life.

I made these up the day prior, as it's good to let them set up in the fridge for easy slicing. While off at the Farmer's Market with a friend the next morning, the husband called me {obviously searching the fridge for food to feed the kids} asked, “Can I eat those wrapped up tortilla things”?

NO!

He probably heard me shout that from the 30 miles away that I was.

After realizing that I was shouting, I nicely explained that those were for the party later that night. I came home to find they resorted to peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

They survived.


These roll-ups were a big hit! Creamy, tangy and full of flavor, the soft tortilla creates the perfect bite for people grazing along the party appetizer line. And even for those that typically shy away from feta or black olives...I have a feeling they will like these!
