This cucumber and salmon roll recipe with dill and cream cheese is a pretty simple and quick appetizer. The fresh dill fronds make a great display on the plate. Instead of cream cheese you could substitute sour cream or goat cheese.

Ingredients:

8 oz smoked nova salmon thinly sliced.
large cucumber – the seedless English ones work well
1 green onion
Pepper and salt
1/4 cup cream cheese
FResh lemon juice
Fresh dill sprigs

A good vegetable peeler, sharp knife, mandolin or slicer. A deli slicer really does make this simple and consistent.

Directions:

Slice the onions into thin strips and then into 1 ½ inch segments.

Cut of ends of cucumber.
Slice it the long way as thin as possible – 1/16th inch.

Lay a slice of cucumber on a board.
Sprinkle with pepper.
Lay a slice of salmon parallel and on top of cucumber.
Place a few slices of onion and sprigs of dill perpendicular to the salmon and cucumber.
Dot both ends with cream cheese.
Roll it up into a sushi shape.

Drizzle fresh lemon over the top of the cucumber and salmon.
Sprinkle kosher salt over the top.

Chill and serve.
