...Smoked Salmon and Cucumber on Pumpernickel...Wine Pairing: Sauvignon Blanc...

Some of you may be interested in this recipe after the words smoked salmon.  For me, it's after the word pumpernickel.  It's my favorite kind of bread- usually toasted with some good butter on it.  Having it this way with Boursin, smoked salmon, cucumber, and dill isn't bad either.

This recipe is very versatile- either for a nice bite at a light dinner or at a brunch, you choose when you want to eat it.  If you live close to a Wegmans you can get nice little salmon portions for 2 and make this up for yourself and a friend on the weekend.  Sure to impress.

Recipe thanks to the Small Parties cookbook by Marguerite Marceau Henderson
