Cucumber Slices with Cream Cheese and Smoked Salmon


  • 1 large cucumber, washed and sliced into rounds
  • 4 ounces (about 113g) smoked salmon, thinly sliced
  • 4 ounces (about 113g) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon capers, drained (optional)
  • Lemon wedges for serving
  • Salt and black pepper to taste


Prepare Cucumber Slices:

  1. Wash and Slice:
    • Wash the cucumber thoroughly. Slice it into rounds of about 1/4-inch thickness. You can peel the cucumber if you prefer or leave the skin for added color and texture.

Prepare Cream Cheese Mixture:

  1. Soften Cream Cheese:
    • Allow the cream cheese to soften at room temperature or microwave it for a few seconds until easily spreadable.
  2. Mix with Dill:
    • In a small bowl, mix the softened cream cheese with chopped fresh dill. This adds a burst of flavor to the cream cheese.

Assemble Cucumber Bites:

  1. Spread Cream Cheese:
    • Take a cucumber slice and spread a thin layer of the dill-infused cream cheese on top.
  2. Add Smoked Salmon:
    • Place a slice of smoked salmon on top of the cream cheese-covered cucumber slice. You can fold or arrange the salmon to fit neatly.
  3. Garnish with Capers (Optional):
    • If you like, add a few capers on top for a briny kick. Capers complement the richness of the smoked salmon.
  4. Season:
    • Sprinkle a pinch of salt and black pepper on each cucumber bite to taste.


  1. Arrange on Platter:
    • Arrange the prepared Cucumber Slices with Cream Cheese and Smoked Salmon on a serving platter.
  2. Garnish (Optional):
    • Garnish the platter with additional fresh dill for a decorative touch.
  3. Serve with Lemon Wedges:
