These are so delicious, I have made them many times for parties and you can make them up to 24 hours in advance

Yield 48-50 pinwheels


1 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional ( I always add it in)

6 slices soft sandwich bread (crusts removed, can use white or whole wheat bread I like to use a combination of both)

12 ounces smoked salmon

6 canned asparagus spears


In a bowl stir together softened cream cheese and mayo until thoroughly blended, then season with a pinch of cayenne pepper or to taste (if using).

Remove crusts from ends of bread slices.

Using a rolling pin roll out the bread slices to flatten slightly.

Divide/spread the the cream cheese mixture on top the 6 slices of bread.

Top each bread slice with smoked salmon slices.

Place one asparagus spread along the shorter end of each slice of bread (trim ends more if necessary to roll).

Roll each slice of bread up firmly.

Wrap each roll of bread up firmly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 24 hours.

Remove from fridge, using a serrated knife, slices each roll into 6-8 pieces.

I make these often with grilled chicken and my Greek salad dressing

I am not listing amounts you may use as much as you like

This will also work well using leftover grilled steak


cooked grilled boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced into strips

flour tortillas

prepared Greek salad dressing

chopped romaine or arugula

sliced red onion

pitted sliced kalamata olives

salt and fresh ground black pepper

crumbled feta cheese


Place 2 tomato slices down the center of the tortilla, then lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Arrange the cucumber slices over the tomato slices.

In a bowl toss the lettuce, red onion and olives in the Greek salad dressing.

Arrange the lettuce  mixture evenly over the cucumber slices, then sprinkle crumbled feta over top of lettuce.

Arrange the chicken strips over top of the lettuce mixture..

Roll up the tortilla tightly, then slice in half.
