Smoked Salmon Cucumber Canapés

This recipe is so simple you just need to look at the pictures to do it.  Simple, yet elegant and very delicious! While most canapés are done with some sort of carbs, (bread, crackers, etc) this is a refreshing and healthy change.

4 or 5 oz. thinly sliced smoked salmon

2/3 cup spreadable plain or herb garlic cream cheese

1 large seedless cucumber

3 tbsp sour cream

fresh dill



Cut cucumber in slices and place on serving dish.  I got about 30 slices from this recipe.

Mix cheese and sour cream in a bowl until smooth.   Spoon mixture into a pastry bag (or plastic bag) fitted with a large star tip and pipe onto cucumber slices.

Cut salmon into appropriate sized pieces and roll, then place on top of the piped cheese.

Garnish with fresh dill.
