  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt or to taste
  • 2 english cucumbers cut into 1/2" slices
  • 4 ounces smoked salmon cut into 1 1/2" long strips


  • Place the cream cheese, lemon zest, lemon juice, dill and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Process until smooth, then taste and adjust the seasoning as necessary.
  • Roll up each piece of smoked salmon, overlapping it as you go.
  • Place one heaping teaspoon of the cream cheese on each cucumber slice. Top each with a piece of smoked salmon and a small sprig of dill. Serve and enjoy!


  • Pro tip: I chose to place a dollop of cream cheese on the cucumber with smoked salmon on top, but you may also place the smoked salmon directly on the cucumber slice and pipe the cream cheese over it for a more decorative touch!
  • Smoked salmon bites may be made up to one day in advance and stored in an air tight container until ready to serve.
  • Customize the cream cheese by adding garlic, capers or your favorite herbs.
