    Serves: 8 Cooking Time: 20 minutes ### INGREDIENTS * 1 large, English Cucumber (HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS!) * 4 oz. Smoked Salmon * 4 oz. Softened Cream Cheese (I used chive) * 1 Tbsp. Capers * 1 Tbsp. Red Onion, sliced thin or minced (optional) * 1 tsp. Lemon Zest * 16 Asparagus Stalks, blanched * 1 Bunch of Fresh Dill, minced ### INSTRUCTIONS 1. With a "Y" peeler or a mandolin, cut thin slices from the top and bottom of the English cucumber. You need 16 strips total. 2. Pat the strips dry lightly with a paper towel to remove excess water. On you work surface, lay one cucumber ribbon over another. By layering two for each roll ensures durability. You should now have 8 total. 3. Spread on the softened cream cheese with a butter knife or cake spatula (about 1 Tbsp. cucumber ribbon) onto the top of each cucumber ribbon. 4. Sprinkle a bit of the capers, lemon zest, sliced red onion (optional) and the minced fresh dill over the cream cheese layer. 5. Leaving about an inch or so of space at the front of the cucumber ribbon, place a few tablespoons of smoked salmon across the ribbon. Leave a few inches at the back as well. This ensure the filling doesn't fall out during rolling. 6. Cut the asparagus stalks into 2 or 3 pieces each depending on the size of the stalk. Place in a strainer and pour hot water over the tops and shake off the remaining liquid. 7. Place a few stalks of asparagus (mix and match the tips with the bottoms) right over the smoked salmon in a bunch. 8. To roll, start at the end closest to you and begin rolling fairly tightly. You will feel the salmon mixture spread out a bit which is fine (this is why we left the back end open and free of salmon). The cream cheese will act as a glue and should hold the ends of the cucumber around itself on its own. 9. Place on a serving plate or eat half before you get that far. Because they are that good! Enjoy!
