Bagel, Lox and Chive and Scallion Cream Cheese

Friends offer exposure to new ideas, adventures and various cuisine. My own immediate family did not eat smoked salmon, however once I learned about bagels with lox and cream cheese, I could not imagine my life without it.

Mildly smoked Coho salmon gently lay on bits of scallions, whipped cheese, all over a toasted tender bagel. So good. The deep hue of the salmon is gorgeous and glistens on the open-faced bagel.

  • 1/2 cup whipped cream cheese, tofutti or chive cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives or scallions (I prefer scallions)
  • 2 bagels, sliced in half
  • 4 ounces cured smoked salmon

Slice bagels in half and toast. Spread cream cheese on bagels and sprinkle scallions on top of cream cheese. Finally, top an ounce to two ounces of lox and serve immediately.
