READY IN: 15mins


  • mayonnaise (or whipped cream cheese)
  • 1
    large tortilla (square, if available)
  • 1 -3
    leaf lettuce (or baby spinach)
  • 1 -3
    slice deli meat (of your choice-I used roast beef)
  • 2 -3
    slices cheese (of your choice-I used provolone)
  • gherkin
  • chives (or scallion tips)


  • Trim around edges of round tortilla(if you can't find square ones) to make it square.
  • 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.
  • With the seam on the bottom, slice the tortilla into 2" wide pinwheels.
  • 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.
  • Makes 4-6 pinwheel sandwiches.
