Ingredients

  • 1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons plain yogurt
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 3/4 cup fresh basil leaves, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 8 slices crusty country bread, toasted
  • 2 large tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/2 pound sliced smoked salmon
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion

Preparation

  1. Combine cream cheese, yogurt, garlic, 1/4 cup basil leaves, and next 4 ingredients in a food processor; process until smooth.
  2. Spread 1 tablespoon cream cheese mixture on 1 side of each slice of bread. Top 4 slices evenly with tomatoes, remaining basil leaves, salmon, and onion. Top with remaining bread slices. Serve immediately.
  3. Wine note: "The red onion has a leading role in combination with smoked salmon. This recipe beckons Rodney Strong, Chalk Hill Chardonnay 2002 ($16)--a full-blown, refined, and elegant wine. Rich and complex with flavors of vanilla, green apple, pear, and pineapple, the wine is balanced by firm acidity, toasty oak, and very buttery undertones." --Rosalind Johnson, Divas Uncorked, Massachusetts
