Sharing is caring!

Tuna Salad Pinwheels are a great appetizer to make for a good ole get together. Make them before so you’re not rushing the day of the party getting food together.

If this one isn’t your cup of tea…you can check out my Chicken Salad Pinwheels. Or the classic Ham and Cheese Pinwheels.

Can I make pinwheels the day before?

Yes, in fact, my recipe calls for chilling/setting in the fridge overnight. This is also helpful when you have lots to do for a party or get together and these are on the menu.

How long do pinwheels stay good?

Pinwheels will last in the fridge, in an airtight container, for about 4 days, considering what’s in them. Pinwheels with just meat and cheese will keep longer than ones like these. Keep that in mind.

Can you freeze tortilla pinwheels?

You can, they will keep, but they may lose some of their quality (texture/taste) if stored too long.

    • I grew up with eggs in my tuna salad. Wasn’t till I married hubs that I found out people eat it without. I like it better, but it might be because that’s how I started. 😉
