  1. Arrange the tortillas on a flat surface, and spread each with 3 tablespoons of cream cheese, extending the cheese to the outer edges. Lay 2 ounces of sliced turkey or ham over the bottom half only of each tortilla, leaving a 1-inch margin on each outer edge. Place 1 ounce of sliced cheese over the meat, and spread with 1 tablespoon of the dressing. Arrange 6 spinach or arugula leaves over the cheese, and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of olives. Arrange 4 red pepper strips and a few onion rings over the olive layer, and top with 3 tablespoons of artichoke hearts.
  2. Starting at the bottom, roll each tortilla up tightly. Cut a 1 1/4-inch piece off each end, and discard. Slice the remainder of each tortilla into six 1 1/4-inch pieces. Arrange the rolls on a platter and serve immediately, or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 8 hours before serving.
