Some people in my house are not as adventurous as others, so I leave a few cucumbers without the roe on top. Then I serve them all together and everyone can pick what they like. My 2-year-old son, who is not very fond of raw veggies yet, likes to just eat the cream cheese and roe off the top. (He and I particularly love roe.) This method also gives my 5-year-old daughter the opportunity to see us enjoying the roe, and even try some herself occasionally without any pressure.
Creamy Cukes with Beautiful Salmon Roe
- Cream cheese
- Salmon roe
- Wash the cucumbers, and peel them if desired. Slice them about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.
- Smear a bit of cream cheese onto each cucumber slice.
- Top each one with a salmon egg. I like to use only only one egg per cucumber, as they have quite a strong flavor that can overwhelm the other flavors if you use more than one!
- Serve and enjoy!
