Thanksgiving Savory Snack Appetizer Recipe

Serve this quick Thanksgiving bite as an appetizer to effortlessly work in some fish before the traditionally meat-focused meal.

Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese Cucumber Bites

Prep/Total Time: 10 minutes                       Yields: 40 Bites


2 English Cucumbers, peeled and cut into 1″ rounds

1 pound smoked salmon, cut into bite-sized pieces

(1) 8-ounce package cream cheese softened

3 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped

1 tablespoon Horseradish (more or less to taste)

1 tablespoon heavy cream, optional

Toothpicks or tiny party forks


  1. Peel cucumbers and slice them into 1″ circles. Arrange on a platter as desired. Place in the refrigerator while you prep the cream cheese.

2. Place cream cheese, dill, horseradish and cream in a large bowl. Beat until well combined (a handheld mixer really helps here).

3. Spread 1 teaspoon of cream cheese on top each cucumber slice, then top each slice with a bite-sized piece of smoked salmon. Insert a toothpick down the center to keep in place.

4. Serve at once, or keep in the refrigerator until needed.
