The recipe makes half the bites with pink salmon mousse filling and half with white herbed cheese. If you like, streamline by choosing just one filling and doubling its ingredients. This recipe comes from Annie Marshall, of the Indianapolis-based blog Annie's Eats.

Ingredients

    Salmon Mousse Filling
  • 8 ounces smoked salmon (lox-style)
  • 1 8 - ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill weed
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • Herbed Cheese Filling
  • 1 5.2 - ounce package semisoft garlic and herb cheese (such as Boursin)
  • 2 -3 tablespoons whipping cream
  • 1 -2 medium cucumber, peeled*

Directions

  1. Salmon Mouse Combine salmon, cream cheese, dill, pepper, and garlic in the bowl of a food processor. Cover and pulse until blended and smooth. Transfer mixture to a pastry bag fitted with a decorative tip; set aside.
  2. Garlic Herb Fillling Place semisoft cheese in a small bowl. Add 2 tablespoons whipping cream. Stir with a fork until lightened and smooth, adding additional cream if necessary to reach a piping consistency. Transfer the mixture to a pastry bag fitted with a decorative tip; set aside.
  3. To Serve Slice cucumber into 1/2-inch thick slices. Gently scoop out most of the seeds from the center of each slice, leaving a small portion to keep the filling from falling out. Arrange slices on a serving platter. Pipe a dollop of the Salmon Mousse or Garlic Herb Filling onto each cucumber slice. Serve immediately, or chill up to 6 hours.

Tip

  • * For a striped look like in the photo, peel the length of the cucumber, leaving alternating peeled and unpeeled sections.
