Smoked Salmon Cucumber Bites with Asparagus Ribbons and Dill Cashew Sour Cream

Guess what today is? Today is baby shower day! A bunch of us food bloggers got together and we are throwing a surprise virtual baby shower for our friend Emily of The Pig & Quill, who is anxiously awaiting the arrival of  her first little piglet in the next month.

Smoked Salmon Cucumber Bites with Asparagus Ribbons and Dill Cashew Sour Cream

First off, I want to talk about how jealous I am of their new addition. I am pretty sure this is going to be the most well-fed little one, ever! That Emily sure knows her way around a kitchen and she doesn’t mess around when it comes to combining flavors and creativity in her recipes. When it came time to create a dish to bring to our little virtual gathering, I quickly realized that couldn’t just bring any ‘ol pink cupcake or some chips and dip, I had to step up, bring my A-game and get serious with my offerings. But, as you guys know I am still smack in the middle of an elimination diet (it was 10 weeks this past Friday, but who is counting) – so with lots of restrictions and true to the real life, selfishly I also wanted to bring something to this party that I could eat.

These delicious little bites are so simple to put together, they are so fresh and light and they are absolutely beautiful to top it off. Perfect for any party. I’ll be honest, the concept of this recipe came straight from me looking for a savory dish I could incorporate the color pink, given that Emily and Chris are expecting a girl! Though salmon isn’t exactly that pale baby girl pink color we all know, I still think I should get major bonus points on sticking with a theme! Thank you.

These have a crisp fresh bite from the raw cucumber, the creamy and tangy flavor from the dill cashew sour cream (feel free to simply fold fresh dill into regular sour cream if you can have dairy), the delicious flavor of the smoked salmon and the bright fresh green taste from the asparagus ribbon and the fresh dill.

Let’s all raise our glasses or maybe just two fistfuls of these tasty cucumber salmon bites and send our well wishes to the soon to be mama, Emily!! Sending lots of love your way, girl – you are going to be an amazing mama!

Dude, salmon is SO the new pink. Kinda like coral is the new orange. Or maybe coral is the new pink? Salmon is the new coral. WHATEVER. My point is this: smoked salmon is the shit, and I want it at my baby shower a million times over. With all the asparagus curlz ever, please. Thank you thank you, Beth! <3

I used to bring these with regular sour cream on a platter as a ” make your own” to parties..now I can bring the cashew cream! I also had a wee bowl of fresh grated horseradish, bet it would be awesome with the cashew cream too! Definitely bring to Easter, at least I can eat one thing! Thanks!
