Serves 6 (serving size: 1 open-faced sandwich)

This sandwich is basically a riff on Hawaii's beloved lomi-lomi salmon, a salad of salted fish and tomatoes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 7 ingredients in a bowl.

Step 2

Combine mustard and next 3 ingredients (through honey); stir with a whisk.

Step 3

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.

This was pretty good. It did have a lot of flavors. If I make it again, I would try it without the mustard dressing and just the cream cheese spread.

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.
