Ham & Pistachio Roll Ups

Martha Price


These roll ups go great on a buffet table or as nibbles at a cocktail party, or even as an evening snack. I first tasted these at a charity fund raiser and liked them so much I actually unrolled one (discreetly) to ascertain all it contained. With a little experimentation, mine taste as good as theirs!

It has the savory and salty flavor from the ham, crunch from nuts, freshness of the celery and slight sweetness of the cream cheese.

Can be doubled, tripled, etc.
