Ingredients

  • 2 large pitas
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 4 oz cream cheese room temperature
  • 2 Tbsp dill finely chopped
  • ½ large cucumber thinly sliced
  • 3 oz smoked salmon
  • ¼ cup capers drained
  • flaky sea salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  • Place pita on a flat work surface. Using a sharp knife, cut each pita into 6 equal wedges — first cut each pita in half, then cut each half into 3 equal wedges. Place onto lined baking sheet.
  • Drizzle 2 Tbsp olive oil over pita wedges, then season with 1 tsp kosher salt. Bake for 6-8 minutes, until lightly browned and crisp. Set aside and let cool.
  • In a small bowl, combine 4 oz. cream cheese and 2 Tbsp dill, then stir until well mixed. Place 1 tablespoon cream cheese mixture on top of each cooled pita wedge. Use a small spatula to carefully spread, then top with 1 or 2 slices of cucumber, and a small piece of smoked salmon. Serve immediately.

Notes

*Cooled, baked pita wedges will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for 1 to 2 days.
