"This is such a quick and easy appetizer to prepare. And, it is the perfect 'make ahead' recipe as well. Simply make the mousse; and put in a pastry bag - or, I use a ziploc bag - then, you are ready to serve. Pipe the mousse into celery sticks, on cucumber or zucchini slices; or, fill 'scooped' out grape tomatoes, cooked 'baby' new potatoes, and baby bell peppers. Or, simply serve on your favorite crackers. You can garnish the mousse with - caviar, chopped olives, dill, diced tomatoes, or scallions, etc. Have fun creating your own favorite combinations. Prep and cook time; does not include time for the salmon to firm up in the refrigerator."
Mousse ... Add everything to a food processor; and, puree until smooth and creamy. Add the mousse to a pastry bag; or, I use a ziploc bag - and, refrigerate at least 2-3 hours to firm up.
Now, it's ready to serve. If using a ziploc bag, simply cut one of the bottom corner tips off. Pipe or squeeze the mousse on your favorite vegetable or cracker. And, the toppings are up to you. Caviar, chopped olives, tomatoes, scallions, dill, etc., are all fun. My favorite is - to cut celery in 1" pieces and stuff with the mouse and chopped olives.
Serve and ENJOY! ... As mentioned; this is a perfect 'make ahead' appetizer. It only takes a couple of minutes to top your crackers or vegetables. Note: If you really want to WOW your guests - top the mousse with a little caviar. Great for entertaining!
