Smoked Salmon Tortilla Spirals

There are many variations of this ever-popular appetizer. Use a variety of fillings such as cold cuts, poultry, seafood. This is a lighter version, a favorite of my Aunt Maybelline when she has a hankering for smoked salmon! Attractive when rolls are served spiral side up on a bed of shredded lettuce.
Smoked Salmon Tortilla Spirals

1 cup pressed cottahe cheese or firm yogurt cheese
2 tbsp honey-style mustard
4 10-inch flour tortillas
1/2 lb smoked salmon, thinly sliced
2 tbsp chopped fresh dill
2 tbsp chopped fresh chives or green onions
4 leaves lettuce, shredded

In small bowl, combine cottage cheese and mustard (if cheese is a litte lumpy, puree in blender or fod processor).

Arrange tortillas on counter and spread evenly with cheese spread.

Arrange smoked salmon on top of cheese (leave about 1-inch border at top of each tortilla just covered with cheese so rolls will stick together). Sprinkle with dill, chives and lettuce.

Roll tortillas up tightly, pressing firmly to seal. Wrap well and refrigerate for 2 hours, or until ready to serve. Trim off ends of rolls (eat them!)and cut each roll slightly on the diagonal into 8 to 10 slices.

Yields about 32 to 40 pieces.
