Salmon and Cucumber Bites

Salmon and Cucumber BitesRecipe

Dramatically cut the calories out of this simple canape by subbing crisp cucumber slices for bread. The freshness of the cucumbers pairs well with the smoked salmon and creamy topping. To contrast the cool and creaminess of this appetizer, serve alongside Cumin-Roasted Cashews for a salty and spicy snack.
