Looking for an easy, yet super elegant dinner party appetizer idea? These smoked salmon canapés with cucumber are the perfect bite sized food. The canapés are made with seafood and a lemon artichoke cream cheese spread.
To a blender add in cream cheese, artichoke hearts, garlic cloves, lemon, parsley, and salt. Blend until thoroughly combined and no large pieces of artichoke remain. Add mixture to a piping bag fitted with Wilton 1M tip. Set aside.
To assemble the canapé, cut toasted pita into 2.5 inch circles using a cookie cutter or jar lid. Spread a thin layer of butter over the pita. Pipe cream cheese along the top of the pita, gently twisting as you pipe to help release at the tip.
Take a strip of cucumber and gently fold it over on itself four times, being sure to tuck the ends behind the nicely folded ribbon. Place the cucumber ribbon on the piped cream cheese, making sure it sticks in place.
