Ingredients: 

  • 1 large cucumber (or 1.5 medium)

For the Yogurt Sauce:

  • Follow the recipe for my Yogurt Dill Dip — note you probably will use about 3/4 of the recipe.
  • If you can, use fresh dill instead of dried
  • Add 2 tbsp chopped chives

For the toppings:

  • 5-6oz smoked trout — I love the smoked trout by Blue Hill Bay
  • Dill for garnish
  • Optional: any kind of relatively cheap caviar (I buy Romanoff — it’s $11 for a 2 oz container)

Directions:

  • Slice the cucumbers into 20 even slices — you can use a mandolin if you have one (about 1/4″)
  • Pat each slice try with a paper towel — this helps prevent the toppings from slipping off.
  • Place about 1 tsp of your yogurt dill sauce on top of the cucumber slice.
  • Then top with a small piece of smoked trout, some dill for garnish, and a tiny dollop of caviar (if you are using).
  • If not serving immediately, place in the refrigerator to prevent the yogurt from getting too liquid. Take out of the refrigerator about 10 minutes before serving.
