A lot of sass, a touch of class.

Lazy Girl Kitchen: Smoked Salmon Canapes With Whipped Chive Cream Cheese

Lazy Girl Kitchen: Smoked Salmon Canapes With Whipped Chive Cream Cheese
November 20, 2016 Melissa

It’s my gorgeous girl’s Friendsgiving and I must bring an app.  😳

Not to fret, my dear- is what I tell myself… with my stress level already UP there… I decide to crank Miss Queen B in the background (for moral support)… and layer some fresh ingredients right on up.  Enjoy.  🍴

  • 6 ounces room temperature cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons plain low fat greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons chopped chives
  • 6 ounces smoked salmon
  • 1/2 english cucumber sliced thin
  • 1/4 red onion, sliced thin
  • 1 plum tomato, seeded and diced
  • 12 slices cocktail pumpernickel bread
  • Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper
  • chopped chives for garnish



  1. In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese and yogurt until light and fluffy. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in the chopped chives.
  2. Spread a teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture onto each slice of bread and then divide the salmon among them topping each with a sliver. Top each canapé with cucumber, red onion, and tomatoes. Season with a little bit of kosher salt and pepper. Garnish with the remaining chives. Serve immediately.
  3. Note: The cream cheese mixture can be made up to 24 hours in advance and stored in an airtight container refrigerated.

(serves 12)


Delish… I recommend prepping everything the night before- and just toppin’ it all off before your par-tay!

You will most def look like you’re one of those girls who has their shit totally together.  And that, my friends- is what counts.


Happy eating!
