These wraps are quick to prepare and make a delicious accompaniment to cocktails.


  • 3 oz. herbed fresh goat cheese, at room temperature
  • 3 Tbs. half-and-half
  • 3 large flour tortillas
  • 5 oz. sliced smoked salmon, cut into strips 1 inch wide
  • Leaves from 2 bunches watercress, tough stems removed (about 1 cup), plus sprigs for garnish


In a bowl, stir together the goat cheese and half-and-half until the mixture has a smooth, spreadable consistency. Spread each tortilla with one-third of the cheese mixture, covering the entire surface. Place one-third of the salmon strips on top of the cheese and top with one-third of the watercress leaves.

Roll up each tortilla into a snug cylinder and place, seam side down, on a cutting board. Using a serrated knife, cut crosswise into slices about 1 inch wide.

Arrange the slices on a platter, garnish with the watercress sprigs and serve. Serves 12 to 14.
