Recipe Notes Cheesy French Pinwheels:

Salami: The salami used in this recipe must be sliced paper thin. Salami that comes prepackaged is much too thick to use, so buy the salami for this recipe at from the deli counter. Ask them to slice it as thinly as possible without it shredding.

Puff Pastry: I used Pepperidge Farms puff pastry. I find that it’s the brand most available at my local market. Feel free to use any brand.

Mustard: I love this made with Country  Dijon mustard. It’s a whole grain Dijon-style mustard. It’s got just the right flavor and texture to compliment the salami and puff pastry. If you prefer, you can substitute regular Dijon. Ballpark mustard will not work. Some form of Dijon is absolutely necessary 🙂
