Elegant appetizer made with toasted baguette slices that are topped with flavorful herb cheese, cucumbers, radishes, smoked salmon, and fresh herbs. 


  • 1 white baguette, sliced into 1/2-inch thick slices*
  • 1 bunch radishes, thinly sliced
  • 1 English cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 12 oz. smoked salmon, flaked and/or thinly sliced
  • Fresh dill weed
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Herb Cheese

  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 3 oz. goat cheese
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh dill weed, chopped
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Arrange the baguette slices on a large baking sheet. Bake until toasted, 10-12 minutes, flipping halfway. Remove and let cool completely.
  3. For the herb cheese, combine the cream cheese, goat cheese, garlic, and dill weed in a food processor. Season with black pepper, to taste. Process until smooth.
  4. To assemble: spread the cheese mixture on the cooled baguette slices, top with several slices of radishes and cucumber, and then a slice of smoked salmon. Garnish with dill sprigs and freshly ground black pepper. Serve immediately.


*I was able to get about 22 slices from a standard size white baguette
