Pastrami Roll-Ups

Romaine Lettuce

For a summer appetizer, skewer slices of tasty aram sandwiches with colorful party toothpicks. Lettuce lends a crunchy texture to these rolled up sandwiches. Lettuce was one of the first plants grown by the Sumerians, along with chick-peas, lentils, beans, onions, garlic and leeks. Romaine lettuce contains the antioxidant phytochemical zeaxanthin that is shown to help protects against free radical damage. It is best eaten with a little oil to help the absorption of zeaxanthin.

    1 large package pre-cut romaine lettuce
    Italian dressing
    8 large flour tortillas
    24 thin slices pastrami
    1 (2-cup) package Mexican shredded cheese

1.  In a large bowl, toss the lettuce with just enough Italian        
     dressing to lightly coat the leaves, but not to drown them!

2.  Lay each tortilla on a breadboard, then spread with a thin
     layer of mayonnaise. Cover with 3 slices of pastrami. Top
     with lettuce and cheese.

3.  Roll up each tortilla and cut into 5 slices.

4.  Either skewer the 5 slices onto one bamboo skewer, or
     skewer individual slices with colorful toothpicks for
     fun summer party appetizers.

     Makes 8 skewered sandwiches or 40 appetizers
