Yield 30 bites
Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 English cucumber
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 2 teaspoons fresh dill, plus extra for garnish
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 6 ounces cold smoked salmon

Instructions

  1. Slice the cucumber into rounds.
  2. Add the cream cheese, lemon juice, dill, and salt to a small mixing bowl. Grate the garlic with a microplane grater over the cream cheese mixture. Beat with an electric mixer to combine. 
  3. Spread the cream cheese evenly over the cucumber rounds and top with a small piece of salmon.
  4. Sprinkle with extra dill, for garnish. 
  5. Serve immediately.

Notes

We prefer these made fresh, but if you must make them ahead, store them in a dish that's lined with paper towels to soak up any liquid the cucumber slices release.

It's really simple to either spread the cucumber with the cream cheese or to spoon the cream cheese into a ziptop bag and squirt it onto the cucumbers.
