Ingredients

  • 2 English cucumbers
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 pound smoked salmon or lox
  • 1 tablespoon 2% milk
  • 1 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon snipped fresh dill
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • Additional snipped fresh dill

Directions

  1. Peel strips from cucumbers to create a decorative edge; cut cucumbers into 1/2-in. slices. Using a melon baller, remove a small amount of cucumber from the center, leaving the bottom intact.
  2. Place the cream cheese, salmon, milk, lemon pepper and dill in a food processor; cover and process until blended. Transfer to a small bowl and season with salt and pepper. In another bowl, beat cream until stiff peaks form. Fold into salmon mixture.
  3. Pipe or dollop mousse onto cucumber slices; garnish with dill. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
