Red Lion Inn Smoked Salmon
This is a quick and showy appetizer adapted from the Red Lion Inn Cookbook. The sour cream mixture is particularly refreshing in the heat of Summer. Pre-sliced cocktail pumpernickel bread is available in most supermarkets near the deli counter. It is a good source of B-Vitamins and fiber and tastes great with the salmon and spread.

1 cup sour cream
8 teaspoons coarse grain mustard
4 teaspoons fresh dill (chopped)
1 small red onions (sliced very thin)
4 teaspoons capers
8 ounces thinly sliced smoked salmon (about 8 slices)
pumpernickel cocktail bread

In a small mixing bowl combine the sour cream, coarse grain mustard and dill.

On a large tray place the bread slices in a single layer. Coat each slice with about 1 teaspoon of the sour cream mixture. Top with a few onion slices and then a piece of smoked salmon. Add a small dollop of the cream mixture to the top and garnish with the capers and more fresh dill if desired.

Serves 16 - two appetizers each. Per serving: 90 calories, 5 grams protein, 4 grams fat (2 saturated), 9 grams carbohydrate 1 gram dietary fiber.
