Sesame Omelet Spinach Spirals Recipe

These pretty spirals would be perfect for a buffet of international hors d'oeuvres. They remind me of sushi. The dipping sauce is an exotic accompaniment to this fun finger food.—Roxanne Chan, Albany, California

  • 2 tablespoons each finely chopped green onion, sweet red pepper and canned water chestnuts
  • 2 tablespoons shredded carrot
