"Okay, I get it. There's nothing radically new about the combo of a bagel w/cream cheese & smoked salmon. I've loved it for a lifetime, even in my Dallas days before I came to Iceland. BUT this recipe found at goodfooddotcomdotau took the combo a step toward bliss for me by adding a caper salsa that my Dallas roots could not ignore. ENJOY!"

Step 1

Combine the salsa ingredients (onion thru olive oil) in a bowl & stir to combine. Set aside.

Step 2

Halve & lightly toast the bagels. Spread each half w/2 tbsp of cream cheese & then top w/the sliced salmon.

Step 3

Pile the salsa mixture atop the salmon & serve. (A wedge of avocado would be an optional, but excellent garnish)

Step 4

HINT: The "never fail" way to get those lovely uniform & thin smoked salmon slices is to freeze the salmon & then use your sharpest knife to shave the thin slices. :-)

Lovely Lox on a bagel with cream cheese etc, what could be better? Tasty salsa with the lime juice & Capers. Enjoyed by both of us. Will pop up again on our Sunday Afternoon Appie.

I scaled it back to use 1 bagel (sesame seeded wholegrain) and enjoyed a very filling and delicious lunch. Thank you TwisSis made For You Consideration tag game.
