How to make Salami and Cream Cheese Pinwheels

Process 1

Slice the pickles into very fine chunks.

Process 4

Spread ¼ of the mixture onto each of the tortillas.

Scatter pickle chunks across each tortilla.

Top each tortilla with a single layer of salami. You will need to cut one slice in half to fit.

Start from one end, and roll each of the tortillas. Wrap in saran wrap, and refrigerate for 1-2 hours before serving.

Process 9

Before serving, remove from plastic wrap. Use a serrated knife to cut the rolls into one-inch sections, discarding the ends (or eating them).

Tips & Tricks

  • Make these the day before your party to save time, and be sure to store them in an airtight container in the fridge.
  • These pinwheels can be served as is or with a dipping sauce. 
  • Pinwheels are easiest to cut with a serrated knife. My bread knife is my favorite to use.
  • I like to use the baby dill pickles for this recipe as they aren’t as juicy as sliced pickles so the tortillas won’t get soggy from them.
  • The end pieces aren’t full, so I usually don’t serve those. You can snack on those while making these pinwheels! Or, you can toss them.
  • Refrigerate leftovers for up to 1 day. Any longer, and they may start to get soggy.
