This next recipe would make an awesome dinner party appetizer. Or even great for breakfast on a bagel {parents usually have this for breakfast}. It is jampacked full of flavor. I never thought I would enjoy smoked salmon or capers to say the least but I do love them both...and together over cream cheese is even better. There are a few more add-ons with this recipe. I highly recommend it, it's light, airy and healthy. So I wouldn't regret it if I scooped up more then 2...IF they're small. ;)

Bon Appetit!

Per serving: 278 calories
Yield: Serves 4

8 thin slices rye bread
5 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon low-fat cream cheese
1/2 English {hothouse} cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced diagonally
4 ounces thinly sliced smoked salmon
1/2 medium red onion, very thinly sliced
1 teaspoon drained capers, rinsed and patted dry
Freshly ground pepper
1 lemon, cut into wedges

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Toast bread slices in oven on a baking sheet, turning once, until golden, about 10 minutes. 
Spread 2 teaspoons cream cheese on each toast. Divide cucumber, salmon, onions, and capers among toasts; season with pepper. Squeeze lemon juice on top. 

See how simple that was?! You can totally make a whole bunch for a dinner party and I am sure everyone will eat them up within minutes!
