  • 6 oz (170g) cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped dill
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 large English cucumber
  • 7 oz (200g) smoked salmon
  • fresh dill to decorate


  • Combine cream cheese with milk, finely chopped dill, and lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Peel the cucumber thinly (this is optional, I'm peeling the cucumber because I don't like the skin) and cut it into 1/3-inch (3/4 cm) slices (don't slice it too thick).
  • Spread the cream cheese mixture over the cucumber slices with a knife.
  • Top with smoked salmon pieces - I cut the salmon into strips and rolled them up.
  • Decorate with small twigs of dill.
  • Enjoy!


  • This appetizer can not be made ahead - the cucumbers will release water and lose their crunch. You can make the cream cheese mixture ahead and store it in the fridge.
  • Calories = 1 appetizer (1/29 of the recipe). This is only an estimate!
