Smoked Salmon Cucumber Bites

IMG_E2303

Smoked Salmon is something great to keep around in the freezer whenever you need to whip up a super quick, but fancy, appetizer!  I had everything on hand for a pool party (except the Chive Cream cheese, but I went to buy the whipped so that it’s easier to mix in.)  It’s also a quick appetizer, that needs no heating, (which is never fun on a hot day outside.)   This appetizer was great for the pool as it was light, refreshing (and had no carbs for the ladies in bikinis.) IMG_E2301

I kept it on a chilled plate with ice underneath too! (easily find online by searching “iced appetizer platter” and a variety will pop right up. Just make sure that your ice/water touches the bottom of the food to keep it cool.

I also made this for a recent wedding shower, and it was a huge hit at the party too! 


Ingredients:
1 container Whipped Chive Cream Cheese (you can use regular too, but this does make it easier than softening) IMG_2361
2 tbsp Dill, chopped (the squeeze tubes are great if needed too.), divided
1 tbsp lemon juice
4 ounces smoked salmon
1 English cucumber (or peel if too thick of skin of a regular cucumber.) 

Directions:
Slice cucumbers to your thickness desire.
