This, light fresh and carb-free appetizer is easy to make and can be made days ahead and chilled for easy serving.  It's healthy and delivers a palate-pleasing taste and texture.
All your ingredients.
The utensils you will need.
  • 1 log Allegheny Chevre
  • 3 ounces smoked salmon (easily substitute your favorite smoked or cured fish)
  • 1 large cucumber
  • 1/2 cup Greek-style yogurt
  • 1/4 cup Olive oil
  • 1 large shallot
  • Fresh dill
  • Salt & pepper
Put the smoked salmon, the chevre, and the olive oil in a food processor.  Season with pepper -- no additional salt is necessary.  Blend the mixture well.
Prepare the garnish.  Finely dice the shallot and the fresh dill.  Mix together in a small bowl with the Greek-style yogurt.  Season with salt and pepper; then mixture together well by hand.
Prepare the cucumber by partially peeling -- mostly for aesthetics -- and slicing about 1/8-inch-thick slices on the diagonal.
Assemble just before serving by spooning or using a pastry bag to pipe a healthy teaspoon of salmon & chevre spread on a slice of cucumber, then top with a dollop of the yogurt mixture as garnish.  Serve immediately or keep chilled.
