  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 2 (4-ounce) package thinly sliced smoked salmon
  • 2 medium cucumbers

How to Make It

  1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a bowl; beat at low speed with an electric mixer until smooth.

  2. Cut each bread slice in half diagonally. Separate salmon slices and cut into 34 strips. Spread 1/2 teaspoon cream cheese mixture onto each bread triangle. Using a vegetable peeler, cut cucumbers into 34 thin slices. Roll a cucumber slice inside each piece of salmon; place over cream cheese spread on bread triangles. Dollop 1/2 teaspoon cream cheese mixture over salmon. Sprinkle with onion and pepper; garnish, if desired.
