Smoked Salmon on Rye Crackers

This is a quick and easy appetizer that makes a truly lovely presentation.

4-6 ounces lox, sliced in 1x1 inch squares (approximately)
4 ounces softened mascarpone cheese
2-3 tsp chopped fresh dill
2 tsp lime juice
About 16-20 rye crackers, or your favorite crackers
Finely diced red onion and/or bell pepper and/or jalepeno and/or cucumber, or capers, olives, pimento, etc. for optional garnish (about 2-4 tbsp)

How To:
Blend cheese, dill, and lime juice. Spread cheese mixture on crackers and top with smoked salmon as well as any garnishes used.

This recipe is from the Vital Choice website. Really delicious snack that we all enjoyed. Ok, well, to be perfectly honest the six-year old only liked the lox and cream cheese and said the crackers were "disgusting". I thought the crackers were great though! You'll have to try for yourself.
