Author Notes: This a party bite that I make, knowing I will be in the slim minority of party goers that actually like smoked salmon. So, while the chips and salsa draws a crowd, you'll find me, hovering over this platter, feasting on fresh cucumber cups stuffed with the bright, clean flavors of salmon, red onion, horseradish, fresh dill, Greek yogurt and lemon.foxeslovelemons

Makes 10 pieces

  • 1 English cucumber
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 ounces smoked salmon, finely chopped
  • 2-1/2 tablespoons Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon minced red onion
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh dill
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons horseradish
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  1. With a vegetable peeler, peel cucumber until no dark green skin remains. Cut off ends of cucumber, then cut cucumber crosswise into 10 pieces. Using a small melon baller or spoon, or the tip of the vegetable peeler, scoop out inside of each piece to form a cup, leaving a 1/4-inch border around edges and on the bottom. Lightly sprinkle cucumber cups with salt, then place, cup side down, on paper-towel lined baking sheet for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together remaining ingredients.
  3. Using a small spoon, fill cucumber cups with salmon mixture. Serve immediately.

I'm with you - why go for anything else when smoked salmon is on the table! This sounds wonderful - thank you for sharing it.

Haha, I like the way you think JanetFL! Good thing we don't go to the same parties - we'd be fighting over all the salmon ;)

I'd say you need to expand your circle of friends! No one I know would go for the chips and salsa if these cute smoked salmon tidbits were an option.

Haha, I know, right Greenstuff? I don't understand people who don't like smoked salmon, but really....it just means more for those of us that do ;)
