Whip cream cheese in bowl until light and spreadable; add basil pesto and mix until well blended. Spread small amount of pesto mixture on top of prepared pita, then top with ¼-½ ounce of Honey Smoked Salmon and lastly, drizzle with balsamic syrup. Serve immediately.
6 oz. balsamic syrup
4 oz white wine vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed

Put all ingredients into a medium saucepan and stir until sugar is completely dissolved. Bring to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes (stirring often), until liquid is reduced and thickens. Cool and pour into squeeze bottle.
