    • mayonnaise (or whipped cream cheese)
    • 1 large tortilla (square, if available)
    • 1 -3 leaf lettuce (or baby spinach)

    • chives (or scallion tips)


    1. 1
      Trim around edges of round tortilla(if you can't find square ones) to make it square.
    2. 2
      Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise(or whipped cream cheese) on top. If you like, you could spread a thin layer of mustard on too.

      Layor on the lettuce(or spinach), then the meat and cheese. Roll up tightly.
    4. 4
      With the seam on the bottom, slice the tortilla into 2" wide pinwheels.
    5. 5
      For the heads, cut a small pickle in half at an angle. Poke 2 small holed in the uncut end and stick pieces of chive with knots at one end in each hole for antennae.( I used scallionn tops, cut a sliver and inserted them).

      Slip each pickle half under the edge of the pinwheel, securing them together with a toothpick if necessary.
    7. 7
      Makes 4-6 pinwheel sandwiches.

      These were a lot of fun. My DS had some friends stay the night, and I served these to them for lunch. You should have seen the 6 year-olds' faces when I told them they would be eating snails for lunch. The giggles that followed when I put the "snails" out were so worth it. They really enjoyed their lunches today! Thanks, Sharon for posting!
