6 ounces low-fat cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill, plus 2 teaspoons for garnish
salt and pepper
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
6 (8-inch) flour tortillas (white or whole-wheat)
12 ounces smoked salmon
3 scallion chopped, green parts only
1 lemon, thinly sliced into rounds


In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine cream cheese, 2 tablespoons dill, salt and pepper to taste, and lemon juice. Beat until smooth and well-blended. Set aside.

In a 10-inch non-stick skillet, warm each tortilla over low heat until lightly browned on each side. Set aside on a cookie sheet.

For each quesadilla: Spread 2 tablespoons cream cheese mixture evenly on a tortilla, covering to the edges. Arrange 2 ounces of sliced smoked salmon over the cheese, covering to the edges. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Sprinkle with reserved 2 teaspoons chopped dill. Cut each tortilla into 6 wedges per serving. Garnish with lemon slices and sprinkle with scallions.
