Quick and Easy Cucumber Bites with Salmon Mousse

During the holidays, or for any impromptu gathering, I don’t like to waste a lot of time in the kitchen. It’s much more fun to spend time with all your guests and enjoy the party. That’s why I love whipping up quick and easy appetizers like Cucumber Bites with Salmon Mousse.

This super simple recipe has a luxurious taste and it’s chock full of some great nutrients, too.  You can use crackers for the mousse, but I prefer cucumbers, not only for their farm fresh goodness but the flavor combination is perfect.  Plus, cucumbers add a nice fresh crunch to this delicious snack.
