Have fun with appetizer presentation for these Passover dairy recipes. It's a chance to use your creativity, even a touch of whimsy, to put a twist on this smoked salmon opener.
To make it really festive, use the green part of a scallion, tied as a bow, to secure each salmon roll.
- Prep Time
- 5 servings ServingsServings
- 4 Persian or Kirby cucumbers, peeled
- 1 1/2 pounds smoked salmon, sliced very thin to yield 16 slices
- 1 cup Temp Tee Whipped Cream Cheese
- 1/4 cup capers, drained
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 Vidalia onion, thinly sliced
- 16 grape tomatoes, halved
- 2 lemons, cut into wedges
- Matzah or flat breads (optional)
- Slice cucumbers lengthwise into 4 sticks each, so that you have 16 sticks total.
- On a flat work surface, place 1 piece of salmon horizontally.
- In a small bowl, mix together cream cheese, capers and lemon juice.
- Spoon 1 tablespoon cream cheese mixture onto 1 end of salmon slice. Place 1 cucumber stick on top of the cream cheese lengthwise, using the cheese to secure it.
- Roll the salmon around the cucumber and cream cheese like a jelly roll. Salmon should create a wide belt around the middle of the cucumber stick.
- Repeat previous two steps with remaining ingredients.
- Arrange sliced onions around the edge of a platter with rolls in the center; scatter grape tomatoes over and around rolls as a garnish and add a few lemon wedges for squeezing over salmon. Serve matzah or flat breads in a basket if desired.
