    Geema's Note:

    Spinach, cream cheese, walnuts and pears are rolled up and sliced for this delicious, make-ahead appetizer. I love this as a lunch time sandwich too since it holds well in a lunch sack. This recipe calls for lahvosh which can be hard to find; just substitute a good quality flour tortilla instead and ignore the instructions for preparing the dried lahvosh.

      Delicious! I used flatbread bought in the deli section of my grocery store, and this made 5 rolls using that. My picky picky DD gobbled these up once I explained it to her interms she would not turn her nose up immediately: nuts, pears (pears are like apples, you like apples), leaves (not spinach, leaves, like lettuce, you like lettuce), and cheese (don't mention the chives). This proves that the only real difference that needs to be between an adult lunch and child's lunch is marketing. :) Thank you for helping me get some spinach into my daughter. :)
