Crunchy cucumber slices are topped with horseradish-infused cream cheese and hot smoked salmon to create tasty, elegant hors d’oeuvres that are guaranteed to impress even the toughest crowd. We love serving these on fresh baguette!

Did you know?

You can substitute the hot smoked salmon for cold smoked salmon, but we recommend trying hot smoked first. We love the way the tanginess of the cream cheese provides a wonderful balance to the intense smoky richness and melt-in-your-mouth texture of hot smoked salmon
