...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
