I’m on a roll with 5 ingredient recipes. (Check out yesterday’s super easy Crunchy Chocolate Coconut Bark). Today we’re going savory with these delicious Olive-Almond Puff Pastry Pinwheels.

Salty olives and crunchy almonds are brightened up with parsley in a rich paste. Rolled up in puff pastry then baked, these golden little pinwheels are perfect with cocktails.

1 cup pitted green olives
1/2 cup chopped parsley
1/4 cup roasted almonds
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 sheet (about 8 oz) frozen puff pastry, thawed and rolled into 12-inch square


1. In food processor, finely chop first 4 ingredients.

2. Spread mixture onto pastry. Roll into cylinder and slice into 40 rounds (I only got about half that amount and my slices weren’t that thick).

3. Bake at 400℉ until golden, tenting with foil if browning too quickly, about 20 minutes.

‘Screaming Colors’ is new from Swedish band Violet Days. In the words of singer Lina Hansson the song is about “the feeling when you realize that you gotta break out of that darkness inside of your head and actually open up your eyes and look around you.”

That is pretty solid advice especially at this time of year when the possibilities for change seem endless.

Check out Violet Days on Facebook and the band’s Website where you can link to buy the music.
