Pinwheel Recipes

Pinwheel Recipes are easy picnic recipes. This east party recipe is great for any summer day!

Whether it's summer party food or something quick and easy for your football party, pinwheel sandwiches can be made in about 15 minutes and are a real crowd pleaser!

All pinwheels start with flour tortillas (or sandwich wraps) which you can purchase in the refrigerated section of your supermarket or grocery store.

The next ingredient is either cream cheese, or you can substitute another dip or creamy sauce (hummus or guacamole -- see easy dip recipes). After that, anything goes. Meat can consist of smoked salmon, turkey, chicken, or whatever you like. You can even select wilted spinach, provided it's well drained, as your main filling.

Use this recipe as a guideline, but feel free to add different ingredients depending on your taste.


  • 4 soft wheat or white tortillas or wraps
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese
  • 1 package (8 ounces) smoked salmon, or deli meat
  • 1 head of green leaf lettuce, wash and separated
  • 4 green onions, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Lay out tortillas and speed cream cheese on each one. Divide salmon or deli meat into 4 parts and distribute evenly over cream cheese. Sprinkle with green onions, and place dry lettuce leaves over the top.

Roll the tortilla onto itself creating a multi-layered pinwheel. Cut off ends and discard. Cut into four or five equal parts depending on the thickness you desire. You can secure each pinwheel with a decorative toothpick if you like.
