This has a bit of everything – a crunchy bagel, salmon lightly smoked, rich cream cheese, capers adding a pickled element and sweet onions, the salad cutting through the richness of the dish.
What You Need
2 bagels. Get them as fresh as possible. Jewish deli’s usually sell them. If you buy regular bagels at your grocery store toast them slightly. Fresh bagels are crunchy on the outside, a bit chewy on the inside.
4 slices of smoked salmon.
1/2 a small red onion.
1 1/2 cup of cream cheese.
10 cherry tomatoes.
3 Romaine lettuce leaves.
2 tablespoons olive oil.
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar.
Salt and pepper.
1 small bowl.
1 small whisk.
Cut your bagels in half.
Peel your onion, cut in half and then cut into thin slices.
Take 2 salmon slices and place on half of the bagel. Add your sliced onion on top. Repeat for the other half bagel.
Take your cream cheese and spread evenly on your two half bagels. Add 8 capers to each half bagel and with a fork press the capers into the cream cheese.
Now take one half of the bagel with the cream cheese on it and add it to the half bagel with the smoked salmon.
Press down with your hand on the bagel and then slice in half.
in a small bowl add you vinegar and olive oil. Using a whisk beat till the mixture has emulsified. Once done set aside.
Cut all your tomatoes in half and add to the bowl with salad dressing in it. Cut your avocado in half, scoop out the pit and then with a teaspoon carve out chunks of avocado, adding them to salad bowl.
Now take your Romaine lettuce and tear into bite-sized chunks, add to the bowl.
Mix everything gently, taste and adjust if more salt and pepper are need.
You are now ready to place.
Enjoy – it’s Delicioso.
