I wanted to make something pretty but fast. Something healthy but yummy. Something that says, OH, wow, that was good! What was in there? I love bagels and lox, capers, the whole bit. One of my favorite stops in the morning in Key West was these bagels. I wanted to recreate that taste without the bread. Something you can pop in your mouth like sushi and say mmmmm. These little smoked salmon towers did just that.
You will need:
- 1 small cucumber sliced into strips and de-seeded
- 1 scallion sliced into strips then some tips reserved for garnishing
- 1 8oz pkg herbed goat cheese
- 1 4-8oz package of smoked salmon
Let me point out that you can essentially make as many of these as your package allows or stop at your desired number. These ingredients will make quite a bit.
Tastes even better and now you have two towers! Take those remaining scallions and dice the tips.
This makes a perfect appetizer and I love the ability to stop when you think enough is enough. These are sure to be a crowd pleaser. So elegant and simple, as well as delicious. But don’t take my word for it! Go make them!
