Helpful hints

  • Shredded lettuce can be used instead of spring mix. Spring mix gives a more intense color and flavor.
  • Use low sodium peppers in a jar or can or roast a fresh pepper over a stovetop burner, place in a paper bag 5 minutes then remove charred skin before slicing.
  • For summer flare, you can also add fresh mint, basil or cilantro for a more refreshing taste.
  • Be careful not to overfill the wrap as it will make rolling more difficult.
  • Serve on a dark or bright color serving plate to contrast the colors of the pinwheel .
