Easy Lunch: Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese Open-Face

This is such a classic combo: Smoked salmon, cream cheese, dill. And it's classic for a reason! It's also very simple, and very easy, and a new favorite lunch.

I bought a small package of smoked salmon, and turned it into lunch this week along with some fresh bread, cream cheese, and dill from the garden. The nice thing about smoked salmon is a little goes a long way; it's so flavorful and filling. It's expensive, yes, but a small package was more than enough lunch for me and my husband when prepared this week.

It's so delicious, too! Creamy, cool cream cheese with that wallop of smoked, tender salmon on top! I cracked some black pepper over it all, and it was delicious. This is such an easy lunch, and packed in a small box, would carry well to the office, too.
