24 pieces, or 8 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1 tablespoon nonfat or 1% milk
  • 4 scallions, white parts only, sliced
  • 4 ounces thinly sliced smoked salmon
  • 1/4 cup whipped cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Freshly ground white pepper
  • 2 large English cucumbers
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
Directions

Process the cottage cheese and milk in a food processor until smooth. Add the scallions, salmon, cream cheese, lemon juice and a pinch of white pepper and process until smooth and creamy. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or overnight.

Cut the cucumbers into 3/4-inch-thick rounds, discarding the ends. Using a small spoon, scoop the seeds and some of the flesh out of each round to form a small cup.

Fill each cup with about 2 teaspoons of the salmon whip and sprinkle with the chives. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve, up to 1 hour.
