Instructions
  1. In bowl, combine cream cheese, dill, lemon rind and juice, salt and pepper. Stir in smoked salmon; set aside.
  2. Trim ends of cucumber. Using a Y-shaped vegetable peeler or mandoline slicer, cut cucumber lengthwise, avoiding the “seedy” centre. Turn cucumber by one-quarter each time centre is just about reached, to make 32 thin strips, each at least 1 ½-inches (4 cm) wide. This may take up to 2 cucumbers. Pat slices dry.
  3. Spread or spoon 1 tbsp (15 mL) cream cheese mixture along each strip; roll up (a bit of cream cheese mixture at the end of roll helps bond and hold roll together). Serve rolls upright on a plate or platter.
