  • Author: Shannon Cairns
  • Yield: Serves 4 1x


These easy turkey and cheese rainbow pinwheels are a fun and colorful way to introduce veggies to your kid’s back to school lunch box.


  • 4 large spinach wraps
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon dry ranch powder
  • 1/2 cup red bell pepper strips, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup orange bell pepper strips, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup yellow bell pepper strips, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup shredded colby jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup spinach leaves
  • 1/2 cup purple cabbage, thinly shredded
  • 8 slices oven roasted deli turkey


  • In a small mixing bowl, combine cream cheese and dry ranch powder mix, stirring until well combined. 
  • Spread 1/4 of the mixture onto each spinach wrap covering the wrap to about 1/2 inch from the edge. 
  • To make the “rainbow,” lay out remaining ingredients on top of cream cheese mixture in this order: red bell pepper, orange bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, colby jack cheese, turkey, spinach, and red cabbage. 
  • Roll up each tortilla tightly. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill until ready to slice. Slice into 1 inch pinwheels and place in lunch box.
