This sandwich is basically a riff on Hawaii's beloved lomi-lomi salmon, a salad of salted fish and tomatoes.
1/3 cup (3 ounces) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon minced fresh chives
1 teaspoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
1 teaspoon plain low-fat yogurt
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
1 tablespoon water
2 teaspoons honey
6 (1-ounce) slices rye bread
6 Bibb lettuce leaves, cut in half
12 ounces cold-smoked salmon, cut into thin strips
24 (1/4-inch-thick) slices plum tomato
24 (1/8-inch-thick) slices cucumber
3 hard-cooked large egg whites, chopped
Dill sprigs (optional)
How to Make It
Combine first 7 ingredients in a bowl.
Combine mustard and next 3 ingredients (through honey); stir with a whisk.
Spread 2 tablespoons cheese mixture over each bread slice. Top each with 2 lettuce halves, 2 ounces salmon, 4 tomato slices, and 4 cucumber slices. Drizzle each sandwich with 2 teaspoons mustard mixture; sprinkle with 2 tablespoons egg whites. Garnish with dill sprigs, if desired.
Totally amazing! We had this delicious open-faced smoked salmon sandwich for lunch today & we couldn't be happier!;) So healthy, so tasty and so totally affordable!;). We buy our smoked salmon @ Costco for a very reasonable price;). My family also loved the sauces & vegetables in it. My husband substituted the tomatoes for capers & it went perfectly fine!;) Thanks Cooking Light for another successful recipe! I can't wait to make this again!;)
While tasty, the price of this dish is crazy. Four ounces of smoked salmon is about $8 and the recipe wants twelve ounces. That's one expensive sandwich.
Having said that, the cream cheese mixture has some great flavors. I'd take that part of the recipe and use that spread in place of cream cheese on other things, like a bagel.
