Smoked Salmon Cucumber Appetizers

Today it is the French national day also called Bastille Day. I want to celebrate with you my French origin by sharing the healthiest appetizer I made to eat while drinking a lovely glass of Champagne. This appetizer is made with cucumber slices, smoked salmon, lemon dill paprika yoghurt sauce and topped with toasted walnuts. This appetizer is what I called a crunchy-gourmand bite.

happy bastille day
A combination of crunch – brought by the toasted walnuts and cucumber – and a smooth, gourmand texture coming from the Greek yoghurt sauce and smoked salmon which melt in your mouth. The best thing in this recipe is also the mix of temperature between the cold cucumber, salmon, yoghurt and warm toasted walnuts.

It is probably not something we thing about but mixing the temperature of ingredient in a recipe is bringing so much difference!

I like this kind of appetizers because they are very low in carbohydrates – which means another awesome and tasty diabetic recipe! As it does not required bread so no flour it is also a perfect gluten-free appetizer. Nutritionally speaking – yes it is time to bring my nutrition skills in practice – it is probably one of the healthiest balanced appetizer you can serve to your guest. It is rich in protein – brought by the salmon and yoghurt –  and low in carbohydrates as it does not use bread or flour.
