  • 1/2 baguette
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 10 oz smoked salmon

  2. Spread cream cheese on each piece.
  3. Cut the smoked salmon into 1×3 inch pieces. Roll the pieces to form the rose shape and place them on the bread.

  5. Slice red onion thinly and place the slices on the bread. Feel free to arrange the salmon, cucumber, and onions in whatever fashion you like and serve.
