Smoked Salmon-Cucumber Rounds

 This is simply, a cleanly, a lovely recipe. Add Bella Sun Luci sun dried tomatoes julienne cut in extra virgin olive oil with Italian herbs for a colorful and flavorful twist on this elegant classic.

Ingredients

  • 1 English (hothouse) cucumber, peeled in a white-green stripe pattern and cut into medium-thick rounds (not too thin or it won’t hold up when topped)
  • 1 package wild Alaskan smoked sockeye salmon (thin sliced nova lox style)
  • 1 small (8 oz) tub Philadelphia cream cheese spread
  • ½ small container chives, chopped very finely

Directions

  1. Spoon up a fingertip’s worth of the spread and scrape it on top of each cucumber round with a second spoon.
  2. Cut the slices of lox from top to bottom, making pieces about the size of the cucumber rounds. Roll these up and place each on top of the spread.
  3. Sprinkle the chopped chives randomly and abundantly.
