Smoked Salmon Roses

This beautiful appetizer doesn't look or taste like health food, but salmon is an excellent source of the omega-3 fatty acids that experts believe are so important to heart health.


Makes 32 servings


1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
1 tablespoon minced fresh dill plus whole sprigs
1 tablespoon half-and-half
16 slices (12 to 16 ounces) smoked salmon
1 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips


  1. Combine cream cheese, horseradish, minced dill and half-and-half in small bowl. Beat until light and creamy.
  2. Spread 1 tablespoon cream cheese mixture over each salmon slice. Roll up jelly-roll fashion. Slice each roll in half crosswise. Arrange salmon rolls, cut sides down, on serving dish to resemble roses. Garnish each "rose" by tucking 1 pepper strip and 1 dill sprig into center.
