Today's recipe is a composed salad with sliced smoked salmon, tomato, cucumber, red onion, dollops of cream cheese, sprouts and bagel chips instead of the more typical fresh sliced bagel.
approx. 12 ounces sliced smoked salmon
1 small to medium size ripe tomato, cored, halved and cut into thin slices
1/2 small to medium size cucumber, halved lengthwise, deseeded and thinly sliced crosswise
1/4 - 1/3 small red onion, thinly sliced
8 -12 ounces cream cheese
bagel chips as needed
fresh sprouts as needed
extra virgin olive oil for garnish
black pepper for garnish
There are no set amounts for something like this but you'll want to place a thin layer of sliced smoked salmon on each plate and top that with a sprinkling of thinly sliced tomato and thinly sliced, deseeded cucumber.
Sprinkle on a little very thinly sliced red onion. Add a few good dollops of room temperature cream cheese and place a bagel chip into each dollop of cream cheese.
Sprinkle on some fresh sprouts if you're using them. Drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil over the top and finish with a crack of black pepper.
A salad like this works best for an upscale dinner party and you don't want to assemble it until just before you're ready to serve it. Use your fingers and a fork at the same time to eat it.
