Smoked Salmon Bites with capers, dill and cream cheese are effortlessly elegant and the perfect party appetizer!

Tis the season for parties and tons of fun with good friends, special family, festive foods and lovely sparkling wine. This time of year is the best! Yes, it can get hectic, but it’s also so spectacular! When I’m hosting a party or get-together, to stay sane, I try to keep most of the food really easy.

These smoked salmon bites are super tasty and look really fancy, but could not be easier. Believe it or not, this is also a fairly low-calorie appetizer. I used a fat free cream cheese to keep things figure friendly and instead of crackers or cocktail toast, you could even use sliced cucumbers to healthify this recipe even further.

The smoky, salty, fresh flavor of the salmon bites pairs perfectly with a sparkling wine, like the Gloria Ferrer Blanc de Blancs. The exuberant and fruit-forward wines of Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards are a perfect match for any occasion. The Blanc de Blancs is my personal favorite- the creamy, clean and refreshing flavor combines well with smoked fish, shellfish, caviar and creamy cheeses.

Blanc de Blancs is made exclusively from hand-harvested Chardonnay. Gloria Ferrer is one of the few wineries that still use a more hands-on harvests starting at 2 in the morning to bring in the fruit when it’s cool, which means the grapes are at the optimal temperature when they are brought into the winery. It is prized among sparkling wine connoisseurs for the rich textural qualities, complex aromas and flavors, elegance and solid aging potential that Chardonnay offers. If that’s not impressive enough, Gloria Ferrer wines have earned over 400 gold medals and 50 90+ scores in the last 5 years!
