Cranberry and Feta Pinwheels have a sweet and salty combo that is the perfect Christmas appetizer. The sweet cranberries with the tangy feta and onions make this 5 ingredient appetizer not only easy but delicious. I like to use spinach tortillas for an extra holiday touch.

CRANBERRY AND FETA PINWHEELS

How was your Thanksgiving? We had a nice spread. About 12 pies for 8 adults. We are still eating the leftovers.

My belt that I was wearing literally popped off my body as we were eating pie. I should have known better than to wear one. I swore I was never eating again and then 4pm the day after Thanksgiving I found myself fork in hand, eating pie.

After every holiday I get the holiday blues the next day. All of the excitement building up to the actual day and then BAM it’s over.

Which is why I’m quickly moving on to Christmas. Too soon? Eh. Here we go.

These Cranberry and Feta Pinwheels are delightful. Only 5 ingredients and you have a festive crowd pleaser. You definitely have to like feta.

Obviously I do because this Feta Dip is one of my favorites. But I almost felt like I cheated. It was almost too easy to be that good.

You could also use wheat tortillas. You just want to use something other than white tortillas so that the filling contrasts the tortilla and really pops!
