Salmon Avocado Spirals

Salmon Avocado Spirals

I wasn’t sure I would like these when I first tried them, but they’ve been on my Pinterest board for a while and it’s one of my goals to actually make the recipes I’ve saved for later. It turned out to be one of the best recipes I’ve tasted in a while! The ingredients are a match made in heaven and so easy to put together. You’re supposed to chill the rolls for at least 4 hours, but if you’re like me, that means sticking it in the refrigerator for 5 seconds before deciding to go ahead and just dig in.

I also put together a quick rice vinegar dipping sauce to balance the rich fats of the salmon, cheese and avocado, but the crisp, fresh cucumber alone is enough to offset the buttery-ness. I’m making up words here I know, but there’s no other way to describe the creamy, melt-in-your-mouth texture with that touch of smoke. Suffice it to say, with or without the sauce these pinwheels are amazing!
