About these Pinwheels
Pinwheels are such a fun party appetizer, picnic lunch, or snack with some staying power. My family loves to make these Mediterranean to take out on the boat in the summertime because they’re easy finger foods and curb the hunger when you don’t feel like having an entire sandwich.
Kids love these Mediterranean Pinwheels too. If you find yourself making sandwiches for the little ones and they end up half eaten, these Hummus Pinwheels are your answer. Small portions that they’ll finish with no problem and probably want more!
These Mediterranean Pinwheels are creamy and delicious thanks to a combination of red pepper hummus and Greek yogurt tzatziki spread across a large tortilla. We will fill this wrap with plenty of fresh veggies too! But, feel free to customize your pinwheel to your liking.
Add protein like turkey or chicken, extra veggies like avocado or spinach, or another spread like pesto! Whatever sounds best to you, try it! It'll be so delicious.

- Wrap - I use Ole Xtreme High Fiber Wraps - A big soft wrap is important for this recipe so you’re pinwheels don’t fall apart.
- Red Pepper Hummus - Red pepper hummus has such a unique, bold flavor that goes great in this recipe. You can substitute regular hummus if you’d like.
- Greek Yogurt Tzatziki - I used Board’s Head. Some creamy, coolness to contrast the peppery, spiced hummus.
- Veggies - This recipe includes cucumber, bell pepper, tomatoes, and red onion.
- Feta Cheese - Is it really a mediterranean recipe if there isn’t feta involved?

Substitutions and Variations
These Hummus Pinwheels are totally customizable to your liking. Add your favorite ingredients, leave out whatever you don't prefer!
- Add protein: Deli sliced turkey breast or chicken would go great in these Mediterranean Pinwheels.
- Change up the spread: Instead or in addition to the hummus and tzatziki, try cream cheese, pesto, or an olive tapenade.
- Switch up the veggies: Avocado, pickles, sun dried tomatoes, spinach, or chives.
How to Make This Recipe
1. Lay a wrap or tortilla on a clean, flat cutting board. Then spread a thin layer of hummus all over the wrap.
2. Next, spread a layer of tzatziki on top of the hummus. Try to keep it really thin so the hummus pinwheels don’t get soggy overtime.
3. Slice the cucumber into thin strips, cut the red pepper horizontally into circular pieces, slice the tomatoes into thin rounds, and finely dice the red onion. Then, arrange the vegetables in straight lines on the wrap. It will help to get a clean roll. Sprinkle dried or fresh dill on the vegetables.
4. Use both hands and roll TIGHTLY. The veggies might try to escape - just use your fingers to tuck them back in as you roll. Cut the roll up into 6 pinwheels (kind of like sushi) and enjoy!
The longer these are stored, the soggier they get. It will also depend on the type of wrap you use. I would not recommend making them more than 6 hours in advance.
You need a tight roll in order for your wrap to stay in place. Try to have the filling as flat as possible and avoid stacking the veggies on top of each other. Thinner sliced veggies will work best!
After you wash your produce make sure it’s completely dry before slicing and adding to your wrap. Also if there’s any excess moisture when you cut the veggies (from the cucumbers or tomato specifically) pat dry with a paper towel prior to pinwheel assembly.
I used Ole Xtreme High Fiber Wraps which are plenty big and soft - the two most important components of whatever wrap you choose. Joseph’s Lavash Wraps will also work great or a large burrito style tortilla of sorts. I love myself a Siete tortilla, but I’m telling ya something that small size and stiffer texture will not work with these Mediterranean Pinwheels.
