Smoked Salmon Sandwiches with Herbed Cucumbers

Smoked fish of any kind is a great safe substitute for sandwich lunch meats and cheeses, but there’s something particularly decadent about smoked salmon.

Pumpernickel bread is one of the most tolerable whole grains for IBS (if you’re very touchy, substitute French or sourdough), and the soluble fiber from the bread and Tummy Fiber allows the safe addition of the insoluble fiber in the cucumbers and capers. These sandwiches look and taste fancy enough for holiday party finger food, but they’re also a great quick and easy take-to-work lunch.

Makes 2 Sandwich Halves, 1-2 Servings

8 thin cucumber slices (peel cucumber first)
1/2 teaspoon dill
1/2 teaspoon finely ground Fennel Tummy Tea fennel seeds
1 tablespoon soy cream cheese
1 teaspoon Acacia Tummy Fiber
1 tablespoon capers
1 pumpernickel bagel, halved, toasted
4 oz. smoked salmon (or any smoked fish)

Toss cucumber slices with dill and ground fennel. With a fork mash together soy cream cheese, Tummy Fiber, and capers. Top toasted bagel halves with soy cream cheese blend, dilled cucumbers, and smoked salmon. Serve open face.

The perfect drink with this sandwich is a hot cup of Fennel Tummy Tea!
