  • 2 sheets Atoria’s Family Bakery Lavash
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese, room temperature (4 oz.)*
  • 2 tbsp. pesto
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/4 (.5 lb) package baby spinach leaves, stemmed
  • 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp. honey*
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp. white pepper, freshly ground
  • 1 cup red cabbage, finely shredded
  • Juice of 1/4 a lemon, freshly squeezed
  • 1 yellow bell pepper


  1. In a small bowl, combine the red cabbage with honey, lemon juice and olive oil. Toss well and set aside for about 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Spread 2 thirds of each Lavash bread sheet with cream cheese and cover the rest with pesto, stopping 1 inch before the edge. (The filling will spread to the edges once the pinwheel is rolled.) Place long strips of carrots, the cabbage mixture and stacked spinach leaves.
  3. Roll the bread sheets up into a tight wrap until you meet the pesto portion that seals the sandwich. Press gently with both hands for about 10 seconds.
  4. Transfer the rolled sandwich to a cutting board, seam side down. Using a sharp knife, trim about 1/2 inch (or slightly more) from each end of the wraps. Slice the logs into 5 pieces.
  5. Transfer the pinwheel appetizers to a serving platter, spiral side up and in the shape of a Christmas tree.
  6. Using a sharp paring knife, form a yellow star out of the bell pepper. Pin and secure the star to the top pinwheel sandwich with a party pick. Serve at room temperature.
