Everyone one should have a go-to recipe that can quickly and easily be made for an impromptu gathering or dinner party. Smoked salmon & cucumber bites only require four ingredients and can be made in 20 minutes or less and there is no cooking or baking required. That’s a win-win in my book!
This appetizer is perfect in the summer with fresh cucumbers and chives from the farmers market or your garden, but it can be served year round since all of the ingredients are always available. Click through to get the recipe and impress your guests at your next gathering with these delicious bite size snacks.
- 1 container room temperature whipped cream cheese
- 2 cucumbers
- 2 tbsp fresh chopped chives + extra for garnish
- 1 package smoked salmon
- Remove cream cheese from fridge so it can come to room temperature. Slice cucumbers into 1/4 inch rounds and place on serving plate. Place cream cheese into a bowl and mix in the chopped chives. Place a small spoonful of cream cheese on each cucumber and top with a piece of smoked salmon and chive. Serve immediately or place in fridge until ready to serve.
