SMOKED SALMON CUCUMBER BITES WITH CASHEW CREAM CHEESE

13

Smoked salmon is a perfect Paleo snack food. It’s high in protein and heart healthy fat and requires no preparation. This quick snack recipe is made with a cashew cream cheese that takes two ingredients, but tastes as rich and indulgent as the traditional dairy version. When topped on cucumber slices, it makes a decadent snack that is easy, healthy, and delicious. If you have a high-powered blender, you can skip the step of soaking the cashews, but the result may be less creamy.

Recipe makes 4 servings.
Approximate Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients
Cashew Cream Cheese
11/2 cup(s) cashews, raw
1 medium lemon(s), juiced
1 medium garlic clove(s)
1/4 teaspoon(s) sea salt
1/4 cup(s) water, or more if needed
Cucumber Bites
1 medium cucumber(s)
1 pound(s) salmon, smoked
2 tablespoon(s) chives, fresh, for garnish
1/8 teaspoon(s) black pepper, for garnish to taste
Instructions
To make the cashew cream cheese, put the cashews in a bowl and cover with cold water. Soak for 2 hours, drain, and transfer to a food processor or blender. Add the lemon juice, garlic, and salt, along with about 1/4 cup water. Blend until smooth and creamy, adding additional water a little bit at a time to thin out if necessary.
To serve, slice the cucumber. Top each slice with a dollop of the cashew cream cheese, and a tablespoon or so of the smoked salmon. Sprinkle with chives and black pepper before serving.

ROASTED PEPPER AND SAUSAGE OMELET

Ingredients
1 medium poblano pepper(s), green chili or bell pepper
4 large egg(s)

Remove from bag, cut out seeds, remove skin and dice.
Meanwhile, beat eggs in a small bowl and add freshly ground black pepper.
Heat medium non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add 1 teaspoon coconut oil when hot.
