Smoked salmon, avocado, cream cheese and cucumber. Better combinations are hard to find and there’s no better meal for a hot day than this one. I would eat it every day if I could, and since summer is pretty much over, I almost do eat it every day. Oops.
Only 6 fresh ingredients are needed to create this amazing meal that, believe it or not, my sister used to serve me and my mother for breakfast (in bed, sometimes). She did it differently, though. Some sliced avocado, shredded cucumber, a clump of cream cheese and a heap of smoked salmon. We took her idea and decided to rework it into something a little more fancy.
Creamy Avocado Cucumber Noodles with Smoked Salmon. Cucumber noodles covered in a creamy avocado “sauce”, topped with paper thin onion slices, soft cream cheese, smoked salmon ribbons with a sprinkle of capers. Oh yes!
I have to eat this at least once more before this weekend, because I doubt we’ll be doing any real cooking since we’re expecting Hurricane Joaquin to hit us dead on. We’ll probably survive off nachos and spaghetti o’s, and ice cream…with Reeses’ Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate sauce.
Then on Monday (hopefully), we’ll be back in business – until Friday when all three of us: Me, Cody and Zellie take a 10 hour road trip to NYC for a little getaway. Cody’s never been there so we’re all really excited.
But let’s get back to this colorful creation – it’s perfect and you should try it asap!
