Mezzetta Peperoncini



Smoked Salmon

Cream Cheese

Greek Plain Yogurt

(I bought the cream cheese & yogurt already mixed)

Balsamic Glaze (Optional)



  • 1 (24-oz.) jar whole pepperoncini peppers drained and patted dry with paper towels.
  • 12 ounces cream cheese, VERY soft
  • 1/4 cup full-fat Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 1 pound smoked salmon, cut into long, thin strips
  1. Make a small incision – lengthwise – on the side of each pepper. Very carefully remove the seeds and discard them. Thoroughly dry the peppers with paper towels; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl beat together the cream cheese, Greek yogurt, dill, lemon zest, salt, and pepper; mix well until completely combined… I got mine already mixed and it was so easy you can do either way.
  3. Use a small spoon to scoop 2 teaspoons of the filling into each pepper. Wrap a thin, long strip of salmon around each pepper and secure with a toothpick. Garnish with dill and lemon zest *optional*. Serve at once or keep cold in the fridge until needed.


I added the lemon zest (outside of lemon the peel) to my mix it was perfect for a extra kick.

Use a tiny spoon so easy to get it in the pepper.

Wrap salmon all the way around with a bit extra then secure with toothpick etc… I used mini forks.

You can make this up to 3 hours in advance just out in fridge.

    Such a cute dish and I’m sure it’s a hit. I love watching football games and the whole environment of food and beer and just a good time I always say, “The day after the superbowl should be a holiday” or move it to Saturday so we can sleep in lol

    These salmon pepper poppers sound like something my family would love. I don’t eat the pepperoncini peppers but my family loves them and this would indeed be a great snack idea for a homegating party. Thanks for the recipe.
