Pinwheel sandwiches have a timeless charm! The attractive spiral shape of the pinwheels, which reveal the stuffing is sure to appeal to everyone.

While the thought of pinwheel always reminds us of jam or cream lined ones, here we present a very innovative Pesto Corn and Black Olives Pinwheel Sandwich.

Buttered bread is first lined with pesto, a classic spread of walnut, basil and garlic, and then topped with corn and olives, before being rolled up and sliced.

This savoury snack is a pretty sight to behold and even more interesting to munch on! Make sure you serve it immediately.

Have a go at other pinwheels like Pinwheel Sandwiches , Date and Chocolate Pinwheels , Vanilla and Chocolate Pinwheels , Jam Pinwheels and Carrot Pinwheels which are equally appealing.
