Salmon and Cucumber Bites



  • 1 (12-inch) cucumber
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 4 ounces crème fraîche
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 ounces pre-packaged smoked salmon, cut into inch-long strips
  • 2 teaspoons fresh dill, chopped, for garnish


1. Peel and slice cucumber into 1/4-inch slices.

2. In a bowl, mix lemon zest, lemon juice, crème fraîche, and pepper.

3. To assemble, top a cucumber slice with a strip of salmon, a dollop (about 1/2 tsp) of crème fraîche mixture, and garnish with dill.

    Dramatically cut the calories out of this simple canape by subbing crisp cucumber slices for bread. The freshness of the cucumbers pairs well with the smoked salmon and creamy topping.
