Smoked Salmon Canapes

Well it’s over two weeks in to the “News Years Resolution Season” and if you’re still going strong, this is a good appetizer recipe for you. This recipe uses lower fat cream cheese and sour cream which cuts quite a bit of the calories, but not the flavor. You can either place the cream cheese and smoked salmon on top of rye bread or a slice of cucumber for an even lower calorie appetizer option.

Smoked Salmon Canapes (Makes about 35)
Weigh Watchers P+ (with cucumber) 1 point for 2 (with rye) 1 point for 1

6 oz. 1/3 less fat onion cream cheese
2 Tbsp. low fat sour cream
3 oz smoked salmon
2 slices of rye bread (if you are using)
1 cucumber cut into 20 slices
dill (for garnish)

1. In a small bowl, combine sour cream and cream cheese (leave the cream cheese out for a few minutes to let it warm to room temp)
2. Place the cream cheese mixture into a zip top sandwich bag
3. Arrange the cucumber/rye bread slices on a large platter
4. Snip the bottom corner of the bag off the sandwich bag to make a small opening to squeeze the cream cheese mixture out of
5. Squeeze about a 2 tsp. of the mixture onto the rye/cucumber slices
6. Place a small slice of the smoked salmon on each of the rye/cucumber slices and press down slightly to spread out the cream cheese
7. Top each with a bit of dill
