Smoked Salmon and Cucumber Canapés

By December 9, 2017 No Comments

Livened up the a dash of hot pepper sauce, these simple yet fancy smoked salmon and cream cheese cucumber bites are crunchy, creamy finger food perfection!  You’re going to just love them!

For a quick and easy appetizer, you can’t beat these.

I love to host parties, but hate letting myself get overwhelmed with complicated, messy recipes that leave me frazzled and my kitchen a mess. Simple is much better.  And the fact that these pretty little bites take less than 10 minutes makes them way attractive from a host perspective.

These are also great for any time of the year Easter, Mother’s Day, or a brunch party! For something different, you can add a little dash of lemon zest and fresh dill.
