BY: Heather Trim

While smoked salmon is traditionally associated with capers, why not try pickled beets for a change? There is a range in the amounts called for in the recipe as it will depend on the size of your bread slices, which tend to vary. To serve as an open-face sandwich, cut into 2-inch (5-cm) squares or rectangles before layering. Then spread with cream cheese and top with beets and cucumber. Arrange salmon attractively on top and sprinkle with pepper.

4 tsp (20 mL) cream cheese, at room temperature
1 tbsp (15 mL) finely minced green onion or snipped chives
2 slices dark rye or pumpernickel bread
2 to 3 pickled baby beets
6 to 8 very thin slices cucumber
2 to 3 slices smoked salmon
Freshly ground black pepper

1 In a small bowl, stir cream cheese with onion until mixed. Spread half the cream cheese mixture on each slice of bread.

2 Thinly slice pickled beets. Lay in an even layer on 1 cream-cheese side of bread. Top with cucumber slices then smoked salmon. Grind pepper overtop, then place other cream cheese-slice of bread on top of sandwich. Slice in half.

Serves 1
