A light, refreshing appetizer with cucumber, horseradish cream cheese, and smoked salmon

Ingredients

  • 2 English Cucumbers, peeled and cut into 1″ rounds
  • 1 pound smoked salmon, cut into bite sized pieces
  • (1) 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Horseradish (more or less to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream, optional

Directions

  1. Peel cucumbers and slice them into 1″ circles. Arrange on a platter as desired. Place in the refrigerator while preparing the cream cheese.
  2. Place cream cheese, dill, horseradish, and cream in a large bowl. Beat until well combined (a handheld mixer really helps here.)
  3. Spread 1 teaspoon of cream cheese on top each cucumber slice (more or less to taste), then top each slice with a bite sized piece of smoked salmon. Insert a toothpick down the center to keep in place.
  4. Serve at once, or keep in the refrigerator until needed.
