● When making pinwheel sandwiches, it’s important to tightly roll them to ensure
that they hold their shape when sliced.
● You can customize this recipe by using different types of deli meat, cheese, and
spreads. Try using roast beef, ham, or salami instead of turkey, and using
different flavored cream cheese spreads.
● If you’re short on time, you can use store-bought sun-dried tomato pesto instead

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make these sandwiches ahead of time?

Yes! These sandwiches can be made up to 24 hours in advance. Store them in the
refrigerator until ready to serve.

Can I freeze these sandwiches?

We don’t recommend freezing these sandwiches, because the lettuce won’t hold up well to freezing temperatures.

Can I use regular tomatoes instead of sun-dried tomatoes?

Sun-dried tomatoes have a more concentrated flavor and chewier texture than regular
tomatoes, so we recommend using them for this recipe. Plus, fresh tomatoes can make
your pinwheels go soggy if they aren’t consumed right away. If you can’t find sun-dried
tomatoes, you can try using roasted red peppers instead.

How do I prevent the pinwheels from falling apart when slicing?

To ensure that the pinwheels hold their shape when slicing, make sure to tightly roll
them and use a sharp knife to cut them. You can also chill the pinwheels in the
refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before slicing to help them set.
