SMOKED SALMON SANDWICHES
Pair with Carta Nevada Brut
1/4 lb thinly sliced smoked salmon
1 container of chive cream cheese
1 English cucumber, peeled
16 slices of thin, pumpernickel bread
4-6 Tbsp chopped fresh dill
Take cucumber and thinly slice crosswise, using a mandolin or other slicer to get the slices extra thin. Set aside.
Remove crusts from bread and discard.
Take two slices of bread and evenly spread cream cheese on both. Layer salmon slices on one piece of bread. Top evenly with slices of cucumber. Sprinkle lightly with dill. Cover with other slice of bread and gently press down on sandwich.
Cut diagonally, into 4 triangles, and arrange on plate.
Repeat with remaining slices of bread.
