This is an appetizer that looks great on the plate and is full of flavor.


  • 1 small green apple
  • 1 package sliced smoked salmon (about 4 slices)
  • A handful of washed and dried watercress
  • 1 Lemon
  • 4 tablespoons crème fraiche (or sour cream)
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh dill
  • Salt and pepper to taste


First, julienne the apple: halve it lengthwise, and using a melon baller, or pairing knife, carefully remove the core. Thinly slice each half of the apple, and then thinly slice the slices into matchsticks. Transfer to a bowl and toss with half of the lemon juice so the apple doesn’t discolor.

Cut the salmon slices into long strips about 1-inch wide. Place a few pieces of watercress and several matchsticks on the top of one end of a salmon strip. Roll up the salmon. Repeat until you have used all your salmon.

In a small bowl, stir together the crème fraîche, the remaining lemon juice and the fresh dill. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve in a ramekin on the side for dipping.
