Expert Tips

Making the pinwheels up to 2 days ahead, then covering tightly and refrigerating them, allows you time to fuss with other last-minute party details.

Give these easy do-ahead pinwheels a flavor twist by using a 2 1/2-ounce package of thinly sliced fully cooked ham instead of the salmon and 1/2 cup well-drained crushed pineapple instead of the spinach.
