- 1/2 cup hummus
- 1 tbsp prepared horseradish/creamed horseradish
- 1/2 cup cranberry sauce, sugar-free
- 1 English hothouse cucumber
- 8 oz sliced Changing Seas Thick-Cut Smoked Salmon
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
- Salt and Pepper
- 2 cups pea shoots
- Edible flowers
- Jicama or crostinis
- Mix the hummus, horseradish, lemon and salt to taste in a small bowl and place in a small ramekin. In a second ramekin add in cranberry sauce
- Use a vegetable peeler to cut into long strips off the cucumber to form ribbons.
- Curl the smoked salmon and cucumber ribbons onto your plates.
- Add small dollops of the sour cream mixture.
- Finish the dish with lemon zest and a scant sprinkle of salt.
- Jicama – Use a mandolin to slice the jicama into really thin tortillas. Try to use the thinnest setting whenever possible to get the best results. If you want to know how to thinly slice jicama, this is really the best way. A knife is not recommended because it will be too thick and will not bend well.
- Plate Jicama or crostinis and enjoy!
