Easy to assemble and elegant, I love serving these appetizers for dinner parties and brunches. As long as the bread is well-toasted, I can also put them together hours before anyone arrives and they still remain crisp and fresh.
ciabatta bread sliced into 1/2 inch pieces
2 oz. cream cheese
2 oz. smoked salmon sliced thinly
English cucumber sliced into thin wafers
capers with brine
1. Toast the ciabatta slices then let cool on a rack.
2. Spread the cream cheese on one side, top with 2 cucumber wafers, then a slice of smoked salmon.
3. Top with a couple capers and drizzle a little of the brine.
