  • 8 pieces thin pumpernickel bread (3 1/2 inches square)
  • 1/4 cup whipped cream cheese
  • 8 ounces thinly sliced smoked salmon
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 English cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 2 medium ripe tomatoes, cored, seeded and diced
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


Toast the bread, then spread 1 1/2 teaspoons of cream cheese on top of each piece. Put a slice of smoked salmon, a couple of slices of onion, a slice or two of cucumber and about 1 tablespoon of chopped tomato on top. Sprinkle with the chives and season with salt and pepper.


Whipped regular cream cheese has the same calories per tablespoon as reduced-fat cream cheese because it has air whipped into it, making it less dense. Great tasting and easy to spread, whipped is my choice for spreading. For baking, I use unwhipped reduced-fat cream cheese because there you need that density.
