- 1 medium red onion, peeled, very thinly sliced
- 1 medium fennel bulb, trimmed, very thinly sliced (about 2 cups)
- 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
- 5 tablespoons minced fresh dill, divided
One 11-ounce log soft fresh mild goat cheese (such as Montrachet)
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup drained capers
- 4 teaspoons olive oil
8 fresh bagels, such as poppyseed, sesame or plain
- 24 ounces thinly sliced smoked salmon
- 4 cups fresh arugula
Toss the onion, fennel, lime juice and 3 tablespoons dill in a large bowl. Cover; refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight. Mix the goat cheese, mayonnaise, capers, oil and remaining 2 tablespoons dill in a medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.
Cut the bagels horizontally in half. Spread 1/4 cup goat cheese mixture over the bottom of each bagel. Top with the smoked salmon. Sprinkle with cracked pepper. Arrange the onion-fennel salad atop salmon, drizzling any liquid from bowl over the salmon. Top with the arugula, then cover with bagel tops. Cut each sandwich in half and serve.
