Spring is in the air and I’m in the mood for light, refreshing snacks.  This raw, mock salmon pate appetizer is one of my go-to party snacks.  It’s a snap to whip up and people love it.  I don’t really think it tastes all that much like salmon, that would be weird…  But it does taste 100% delicious!  And I promise, the platter will be cleared moments after you set it on the table.

Mock Salmon Pate on Cucumber Rounds

  • 2 cups raw walnuts
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1 red pepper, seeded
  • 1 scallion, roots trimmed
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt you can add up to a tsp, but taste as you go
  • English cucumbers, probably 2-3 depending on the size peel if you like, not necessary
  • capers for garnish
  • extra red pepper if you want to shave off thin slices to garnish, this looks pretty

Directions

  1. Put all the ingredients but the cucumbers, capers and extra red pepper into your cuisinart and blend until you have a nice, thick paste, scraping down the sides as you go.
  2. Let the pate chill in the fridge while you slice up your cucumbers.
  3. Top each cucumber round with a dollop of pate, a caper and a sliver of red pepper.
  4. Arrange on a platter and enjoy!
