Take the classic combination of lox, bagels and cream cheese and turn it into an elegant opening for your holiday festivities. Lox is smoked salmon that has been brine-cured before smoking, resulting in a saltier taste; if you wish, ask for the less salty "Nova" lox.
|1/4||cup reduced-fat or fat-free cream cheese, softened|
|1||tablespoon chopped fresh dill or 1 teaspoon dried dill weed|
|1/8||teaspoon ground red pepper|
|4||ounces thinly sliced smoked salmon or lox|
|24||melba toast rounds or other low-fat crackers|
|Fresh dill sprigs, (optional)|
- Combine cream cheese, dill and red pepper in small bowl; stir to blend. Spread evenly over each slice of salmon. Roll up salmon slices jelly-roll style. Place on plate; cover with plastic wrap. Chill at least 1 hour or up to 4 hours before serving.
- Using sharp knife, cut salmon rolls crosswise into 3/4-inch pieces. Place rolls, cut side down, on melba toast. Garnish each salmon roll with dill sprig, if desired. Serve cold or at room temperature.
