I made these for an outdoor concert at Ravinia. Please look at the serving size. I missed that part before mixing up the cream cheese mixture. These were very good but a little oily. Perfect for the venue that they were prepared for.

Not bad. I made Amazing Muffaletta Olive Salad to use for these pinwheels, and it was perfect.

came out really good, I used a pre-made olive salad from the olive bar at grocery store.

Fantastic recipe! I cut the recipe in half, using 3 tortillas and one 8-oz. cream cheese, but I used almost 1/4 pound each of the meats and cheeses and about 3/4 of a 16-oz. jar of store-bought muffuletta salad (olive salad). Like I always do when making pinwheels, I cut the rounded edges off the tortillas to make them square before I spread on the cream cheese so there's less waste. These were very quick and easy to make and tasted great....a lot like a muffuletta sandwich, but less filling. My guests loved them.

as a 20 year resident of the big easy i must say this recepie is pretty right on to make it a bit cleaner i'm making popeprs... i know sound weird but i'm basically taking the mix chilling it and pressing it inside of a biscut wish me luck :)

These were super tasty! I used garden vegetable flavored cream cheese instead and didn't add anything to it. I also left out the salami and mozzarella and they were still very filling. They disappeared pretty quickly at my party!

I enjoyed these pinwheels. Great use of olives.

I gave this 5 stars because its a great basic recipe. I too used a pre-made olive mix. Used whole wheat tortillas and omitted the cream cheese and used a tomato-basil hummus instead. I also omitted the olive oil dried seasonings. Lots of oohs and aahs - nothing was left!
