Recipe type: Entree
Serves: 2
  • 2 whole wheat tortillas
  • 2 oz smoked salmon, chopped
  • ¼ chopped artichokes
  • ¼ light cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp crumbled goat cheese
  • ¼ tsp fresh ground pepper
  • ⅓ cup light mayo
  • 2 tbsp capers plus some of the juice
  • 2 tbsp minced red onion
  • ½ tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1 -2 tsp lemon juice
  1. Mix together the ingredients from mayo to lemon juice. Stir to combine. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. You may want to thin out this sauce with a few drops of water. Depends on your desired thickness.
  2. For the quesadillas, spread out all of the cream cheese on one side of a tortilla.
  3. Sprinkle on the smoked salmon, artichokes, crumbled goat cheese and ¼ tsp ground pepper evenly on top of the cream cheese.
  4. Dot with the 2 tbsp of crumbled goat cheese and top with the remaining tortilla.
  5. In a medium sized skillet (should be the size of your tortillas) cook quesadilla on high for about 2 minutes per side. Watch out, they will cook quickly! You want the tortilla to get slightly browned and crisp and the insides to get warm and cheese to melt!
  6. Slice into 6 wedges and serve hot with the lemon caper sauce!
