These are a cute and fresh idea for an appetizer or as a pretty addition to a festive vegetable tray. I used to steam the pea pods, but this uncooked method yields a nicer look without all the fuss.

  • Mix cream cheese, smoked salmon, garlic salt, and pepper in a bowl until smooth. Spoon salmon mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a star tip. Pipe mixture into the center of each snow pea pod, creating a scalloped edge. Sprinkle dill weed over cream cheese filling.

Cook's Note:

I have made these without the salmon with great results too. You can also change up the herbs or spices to taste. They look cute with a tiny shrimp or fresh peas as a garnish.
