Cucumber Tartines with Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese

Friday, August 19, 2016

I think I am having Europe withdrawals, mainly because I miss all the food and desert and the people and the sunshine. Ok I miss it all, but this morning I woke up craving these cucumber tartines with smoked salmon & cream cheese I had almost every day while in Croatia. These are so easy to make, and are super flavorful and creamy, but still light and healthy.
Here is what you will need:
  • 1 cup herb cream cheese, softened
  • 1 large package of smoked salmon
  • Slices of country bread (or homemade bread)
  • Freshly cracked black pepper (to taste)
  • Sea salt (to taste)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tea spoon honey
  • 1 cucumber

  • In a small bowl prepare the marinade by combining olive oil with honey and cracked black pepper.
  • Toast the bread slices briefly and rub with pre made marinade
  • Spread some of the cream cheese mixture on each one.
  • Place piece of smoked salmon then top with cucumbers.
  • Sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper and serve immediately. 

These are perfect for brunch or get together with friends. What food do you crave from holidays you have taken
