Your guests (and even your kids) will love them. This recipe makes 24 smoked salmon and cream cheese spiral pieces, but If you are cooking for a holiday crowd, double the recipe so you have more than enough on hand. More of the Backstory after the recipe…
Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese Spirals
- 2/3 cup KRAFT PHILADELPHIA Chive and Onion 1/3 Less Fat than Cream Cheese*
- 4 whole wheat flour tortillas, 10 inch
- 8 ounces smoked salmon (lox), cut into strips
Spread 2 tbsp. cream cheese on each tortilla, leaving approximately 1 inch on the outer circle.
Place 2 oz. smoked salmon on top of each.
Roll up like a jellyroll and wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
When ready to serve, slice each roll into 6 pieces, cutting on the diagonal.
* Can substitute with any vegetable-flavored or onion flavored low fat cream cheese.
…The Backstory continues: Also note that I’ve written the recipe using chive and onion cream cheese (for a little more savory kick), but feel free to use plain cream cheese or any other vegetable flavored cream cheese that you prefer.
