Greek Pinwheels

I can't resist a nice big Greek Salad.  I like them so much that occasionally on Friday pizza night I forgo the pizza all together dine on just salad instead.

These delicious roll ups mimic the flavors of my favorite salad and please kids and adults alike!  I made them for my daughter's birthday party and all I can say is yum, yum, yum.  I personally am not a big fan of olives, but I found chopped olives in a can, where the pieces of olives are just tiny enough that they give great flavor without leaving me cringing and trying to pick the little buggers out.

I also wanted to try out Philadelphia's new cooking cream and I thought it was great!  It was a little thinner than I expected it to be, but it worked out just fine.  The only change I might make next time is to add more feta.  I don't think there's a such thing as too much feta, so next time I'll be loading them up!

  1. Gonna try this with chopped red onion in place of the olives, because as much as I love Greek food, I don't like olives...

    1. I bet it would be great with some red onion.
