It’s officially summer, aka “make-and-take” season, and what better dish to bring to the party (or directly to the couch for a Netflix binge) than these 5-ingredient Smoked Salmon Pinwheels? That’s a rhetorical question, because these easy, no-cook bites are delicious, nutritious and above all, super simple to make. They’re the perfect go-to snack or appetizer of the summer.

I don’t know about you, but I always want — nay, NEED — easy, no-cook recipe ideas on hand for all the occasions. This can include a last-minute appetizer, a quick snack or a night when even the mere thought of cooking dinner is enough to send me straight to bed. Yet, I don’t want to compromise on flavor or nutrition. My friends, we can do this — and we have these smoked salmon pinwheels to thank for it.

Why Sprouted Grains Are Better For You

First, let’s talk about Angelic Bakehouse’s sprouted grains products and why I’m officially obsessed. Angelic Bakehouse makes bread, wraps, flatbread pizza crust, buns, even crackers all with the same number-one ingredient: sprouted grains. Why, you ask?

Here’s why: Because when a seed turns into a sprout, it increases the levels of B vitamins, folate, fiber and essential amino acids. And many people say sprouted grains are easier to digest than other grains. You can read all about this and more on Angelic Bakehouse’s website.

Above all, sprouted grains just taste really good. And when you combine them in a colorful wrap with chive cream cheese, fresh dill, thin-sliced cucumber and smoked salmon like I did here, you end up with what Angelic Bakehouse themselves describe as “numazing™: ” (that’s nutritious + amazing). I couldn’t agree more.

How To Make Smoked Salmon Pinwheels

I hardly need to tell you how to make these pinwheels, they’re so easy. But if you want to know the details, I shall gladly share.

First, choose a wrap. I went with a mix of Angelic Bakehouse’s 7-Grain Wraps, Vibrant Beet wraps and Turmeric Sweet Potato wraps — feel free to do the same, or choose your favorite.

Next, I combined fresh dill with whipped chive cream cheese and spread a thin layer on each wrap. I then topped them with ribbons of thin-sliced fresh cucumber and finally, a few pieces of smoked salmon. Each one is rolled up, cut into 1/2-inch thick slices and served. So simple. So nutritious. So delicious.

Tips for the Best Salmon Pinwheels

Here are a few tips for making the best-ever pinwheels:

1. Don’t overfill the wraps. If you do, some of the fillings will slide out. Use less filling than you think you need to — a little goes a long way with these bold flavors!

2. Spread a little cream cheese all the way to the edge of one side only of each wrap. This will act as the “glue” that keeps the pinwheels rolled up.

3. Use a vegetable peeler to slice the cucumber lengthwise into thin ribbons that will roll up easily in the wraps. You can also use a Mandoline slicer, if you have one.

4. These are best served right away, but if you prefer, you can make them up to a few hours ahead. Just be sure to cover and refrigerate them until ready to serve.

All right, my friends! Thus concludes my story all about 5-Ingredient Smoked Salmon Pinwheels, aka THE new snack/appetizer of your summer. I think — nay, KNOW — you’ll love them as much as I do. Click here now for a $2 off coupon!

Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 Angelic Bakehouse Sprouted Wraps, any variety (Sprouted 7-Grain Wraps or Garden Wraps)
