Smoked Salmon Cucumber Sandwich

These pretty little bites are so fun and so yummy, that even if you eat bread, you're going to want to give them a try. There's seriously nothing not to love about them, and that's coming from someone who's *not* a fan of cucumbers.

Especially on a hot day when cooking sounds super un-fun, these are a delicious solution!

YIELD 4 servings


4 medium cucumbers

8 ounces wild-caught smoked salmon

2 cups guacamole

1/4 red onion, finely sliced

1/4 red pepper, finely sliced


1. Cut each cucumber in half length-wise and use a spoon to scrape out the seeds to create channels

2. Use a veggie peeler to remove the skin and shave down the walls just a bit if they feel too thick (I left mine no thinner than 1/4 inch-ish) - I left a little skin around the edges because I thought it looked pretty, up to you

3. Spread about 1/4 cup guacamole into each cucumber channel, then layer in your salmon, peppers and onions

4. Join the halves, cut into two or three pieces and enjoy!
