Meanwhile, prepare dressing and vegetables.
To Make Dressing: In a small bowl, stir together tahini, 3 tablespoons water, lemon juice, garlic, and salt to taste.
It will be as thick as mayonnaise. (Dressing may be refrigerated up to 1 week.) To Prepare Vegetables: Squeeze cucumbers dry in a clean towel.

Transfer to a bowl and toss together.

If they are not soft and pliable, place on a plate, cover with plastic wrap, and microwave on high (100%) for 30 to 50 seconds.
Spread each round with 2 tablespoons dressing.
Spread a layer of vegetables and peperoncini down the center.
Sprinkle with cheese and roll up tightly.
Repeat with remaining ingredients.
Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to 4 hours before serving.
Cut each sandwich in half to serve.
