This is a treat! I used lox, cut the recipe back to 6 cups. We loved it. The fresh dill gives the final touch. This will be made again.

Great recipe Breezer! For my next dinner party, I'm using this as a starter, for the looks of it and for it's flavorful results. I hadn't bought smoked salmon in ages and I'm so glad that I decided to make this recipe! Very tasty and so easy. Thank you Breezermom for sharing. Made it for CQ4, 2017 - Scandanavia.

I only had about 1/3 of an English cucumber lurking in the fridge and I had Smoked Salmon in individual 40 gram packages so I decided to try these for a light lunch. They were so very good that I was tempted to drive to the store for more cucumber! So easy to put together and so darned good!! They will be made often for parties as well as lunches for myself. Thank you for posting this keeper! Made for CQ4

Excellent! These make a great and easy party appetizer! I didn't use the "lox" type of salmon, but rather a chunk of smoked fillet. So good! I usually make something similar with Kewpie Mayo and Wasabi - and guests always gobble them down. This will be my new go-to appetizer, along with my wasabi cucumber cups! I find it easiest to use a small melon-baller to scoop out the cucumber cups - easy peasy! Thanks for posting... made for CQ4, Team Happy Campers.
