At OHC sometimes we need meals to be speedy. Either because we are super hungry and need to eat NOW or because it’s late and we need to get something in our bellies quickly. Either way, we need food and we need it fast.
Smoked salmon or Lox is great to have on hand just for such occasions. One of the easiest and quickest things to do with it is to create a sandwich.
- Chewy whole grain bread
- Smoked salmon or lox
- Red onion
- Cheese (parmesan or sharp cheddar work great)
- Sandwich spread
First start by making the sandwich spread:
Smoked Salmon Sandwich Spread
- Greek Yogurt (I prefer 2% Fage)
- Dried Dill
- Ground Black Pepper
The amount depends on how much sauce you like and how many sandwiches you are making. I typically use:
- About three heaping spoonfuls of yogurt.
- Two spoonful of capers.
- Tablespoon of dried dill
- Pinch of pepper
Mix and let sit while you assemble the sandwich.
If you are doing a traditional style sandwich, with two slices of bread, live a little and put the sauce on both slices! Finish by adding lettuce, tomato, onion, cheese, and the smoked salmon.
Or go fancy and make open faced sandwiches!
This quick meal has everything:
- Whole grains from the bread
- Healthy fats and oils
It’s quick and filling. Plus it’s easy to get on the table fast when you and your family need to eat something now!
