by The School of Balance

Perfect for a healthy lunch when you're in a hurry. Enjoy!


  • 1 slice of rye bread
  • 2 tbsp cream cheese (low fat is fine)
  • A slice of smoked salmon
  • Black pepper
  • Lettuce (optional)
  • Parsley or chives (optional)
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    This is more of an assembly job than a recipe, but is perfect for a quick healthy lunch when you're in a hurry.

    Step 2

    Take one slice of rye bread and slice into two

    Step 3

    Add a generous layer of cream cheese

    Step 4

    Drape slices of smoked salmon on each. I use the salmon trimmings from the supermarket which are perfect when you don't need full slices as they're much cheaper.

    Step 5

    In the winter I buy bags of frozen herbs for ease. You could easily make your own with plastic zip bags.

    Step 6

    Add freshly ground black pepper to each and serve with a sprinkling of chives or parsley and some lettuce drizzled with rapeseed oil or your favourite dressing. Enjoy!

    Step 7

    You can also make mini versions of these for canap├ęs or alter the filling for example crushed avocado mixed with a little lemon juice and red chilli and topped with shredded roast chicken works well.
