Pita Spirals

1 pita bread (or 2 flour tortillas)
1/2 cup cream cheese, room temperature
4 chives, 1 sprig of dill, and/or 3 basil leaves (optional)
1 medium-sized ripe tomato, sliced into thin rounds
6 large, crisp spinach leaves, washed and dried

Snip around the edges of the pita bread with scissors to separate it into 2 halves. Put the circles down on the cutting board with the inside part facing up.

Put the soft cream cheese in a small bowl. Use scissors to snip tiny pieces of chives, dill and/or basil over the bowl, if you'd like to add them.

Spread a thin layer of cream cheese onto each pita circle.

Put 3 tomato slices in a row down the middle. They can be on top of each other a little.

Spread some cream cheese onto 2 or 3 spinach leaves. Lay the leaves on top of the tomatoes, with the cream cheese facing up.

Roll up the circle, pressing the edges tightly closed. You will end up with a log shape. Cut the log crosswise into 3 or 4 pieces to show the spiral design inside. Makes 2-3 servings.
