  • 2 large English cucumbers
  • 1/4 lb smoked salmon, chopped
  • 3 Tbsp red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp capers, drained
  • pinch black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp e.v. olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp fresh dill, chopped
  • 3 Tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped as garnish


  • Slice cucumbers in 1/2″ thick rounds (should have ~ 18 slices) and lay out on a platter.  If there are a lot of seeds, you can scoop out a little divot in the cuke, so the mixture stays contained better & doesn’t become watery.
  • Mix together all ingredients except cucumbers & parsley in a medium bowl.  Add sea salt to taste.  Scoop 1 Tbsp (a small mound) on each of the cucumber pieces.  Sprinkle with parsley.  Happy Eating!  Beckie


Things In My Kitchen:

Pastry “scooper” – also known as a pastry scraper or chopper.  I use it to scoop up ingredients and place in a bowl.  Tons more efficient than using your hands to transfer chopped food.
