Ingredients

  • 3 ounces low-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 2 teaspoons chopped capers
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill
  • 2 whole-grain bagels, unsliced
  • 4 ounces smoked salmon, thinly sliced
  • 2 large slices tomato
  • 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
  • Sliced cucumber

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Mix together the cream cheese, capers, chives and dill in a small bowl. Set aside. 

Cut a thin slice away from the top and bottom of each bagel using a serrated knife, and then slice the bagels in half horizontally (reserve bagel scraps for another purpose, such as homemade breadcrumbs). 

Assemble the sandwiches by spreading each bagel half with 2 teaspoons of the cream cheese mixture. Top with the smoked salmon, tomatoes, onions and cucumbers. Transfer the sandwiches to a panini press or a nonstick skillet and cook until the bagels are toasted on each side.
