Bright Pinwheels

A wrap becomes colorful pinwheels when layered with bright ingredients and sliced sideways. I've used smoked salmon, but any sliced meat will do. Ditto for the vegetables: Use what you like. Carrot strips — made with a vegetable peeler — work very well.

Makes 1 serving

1 tablespoon cream cheese, plain or herbed

1 6-inch whole grain tortilla

2 tablespoons shredded broccoli, or other vegetable, available pre-packaged

1 to 1 1/2 ounce (2 to 3 slices) store-bought smoked salmon

2 tablespoons chopped red pepper

1 piece soft-leaf lettuce, such as butter or oak leaf

Spread the cream cheese over the tortilla. Sprinkle the broccoli slaw over the tortilla, creating an even layer. Lay the salmon over the slaw. Top with the pepper and then the lettuce. Roll the tortilla tightly, sealing with a smear of cream cheese at the seam if necessary. Using a serrated knife, slice gently into 1/2-inch pieces.
