Cucumber, Cream Cheese & Smoked Salmon Boats

Back to school lunch ideas :-)



  • 1 small cucumber
  • 110 g cream cheese 3 tbsp
  • 15 g sour cream 1 tbsp
  • ½ tbsp chopped dill or fennel
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • Pinch black pepper
  • 60 g smoked salmon finely diced (2-3 slices)


  • Wash the cucumber and pat dry. Slice in half lengthwise. Using a melon baller scoop out the seeds so the cucumber resembles the inside of a boat or canoe. Cut into 3 cm lengths.
  • Mix cream cheese, sour cream, dill, lemon juice, black pepper until blended. Fold in the smoked salmon.
  • Spoon approximately 1 tbsp of this mixture onto each piece of hollowed-out cucumber. Garnish with fresh dill or fennel.

Maggie's Tips

• If kiddies are averse to green, peel the cucumber
• Best kept chilled in a cool bag
