Here's another interesting way to present sandwiches for guests.


How to assemble: Use thin-sliced, fresh white bread. Make a sandwich stack, using all 5 fillings and 6 slices of bread. Repeat until there are 7 stacks. Trim off crusts. Cut each stack in two, on the diagonal. Arrange triangles on platter to form 2 pinwheels. Frost top and one side of each triangle with cream cheese, whipped until fluffy and tinted pale green with food coloring. Garnish each wedge with an olive, shrimp, pickled onion, or anchovy fillet on a wooden pick. Place a radish rose in center of each pinwheel. Makes 14 servings.
