Serving wraps at a party is one of my go-to tricks. They offer up a substantial bite, and when sliced and served with a toothpick, create an artsy statement that looks grander than the time you spent pulling it together. These turkey wraps hosts a classic flavor combo: turkey, swiss cheese and cole slaw. These ingredients were chosen for their whiteness, that is, we are creating a menu for an all-white buffet. It really makes an impression when you see it all together. The addition of cream cheese works as a glue to hold it all together.
Here are some tips for creating a solid presentation. Make sure the cole slaw does not have excess liquid in it—squeeze out all the moisture in a sieve/coldander before spreading on the wraps, and do not overfill. The addition of Maille Dijon Originale into the cole slaw vinaigrette gives it a little more zip, be sure to add it. Alternatively, you could salt the grated cabbage and drain the liquid out before preparing, up to you.

MAKE THE WRAPS
8-inch flour tortillas
8 oz cream cheese
1 LB turkey, sliced thin
1 LB Jalsberg swiss cheese slices
Spread a thin layer of cream cheese all over one side of tortilla. Top with 1 or 2 slices of turkey leaving about 2 inches uncovered at one end. Cover turkey with swiss cheese. Spread a thin layer of cream cheese over the swiss. Spoon a thin layer of cole slaw, keeping more to the center, not edges. Roll tightly. The cream cheese works to seal the end of the wrap. Trim ends, slice the rest into 8 pieces.
