Smoked Salmon Bagel Sandwiches

I don’t know about you, but I am a sandwich person.
One of my favorite sandwiches, I’d say in the top 5 would be this smoked salmon bagel sandwich.  I devour it and to be honest, I could never become tired of eating this kind of summich. I called this a lazy Friday dinner because it was quick and no cooking required, but everyone loved it. This is really perfect any day of the week as well as for parties.

They are in a way fancy, but not really, if you know what I mean?!
I am just in love with this delightful sandwich so that’s why I’ve decided to share it here on my blog.

Of course, creating a sandwich is something that should be personalized. I love building it myself, as for the rest of my fab family, I ask what they want because we are pretty darn serious when it comes to building a sandwich. Sometimes, I would just display or set on the cutting board,  sort of like charcuterie board so they can build their own bagel sandwiches. Lately, we have been enjoying those very much and let me tell you, we all love it. 

What is your favorite sandwich?





Smoked Salmon Bagel Sandwiches

Prep Time 5 minutes
Servings 1 Sandwich


  • 1 Bagel 6 oz.
  • 1 tablespoon whipped cream cheese split in half
  • 1 teaspoon chives chopped
  • 1/2 Avocado thinly sliced
  • 3 ounces thin-sliced smoked salmon
  • English cucumber or mini cucumbers thinly sliced
  • Fresh Organic Spinach or lettuce

Other additions

  • Red onion
  • Drained Capers
  • Fresh Dill
  • Za'atar


  1. SLICE bagel in half horizontally. Mine was presliced, so I just carefully separated both pieces.
  2. Spread BOTH sides with cream cheese and sprinkle with the chopped chives.
  3. Over cheese on 1 bagel half, layer English cucumber or mini cucumber, thinly sliced avocado, smoked salmon, spinach - now, it a good time to add other additions such as red onion and/or capers.
  4. Set remaining bagel half, cream cheese side down, over filling.

Recipe Notes

You can personalize it however you would like. I love adding capers and red onion, not in the pic, but it's absolutely fantastic. You can also try it with chives cream cheese or sprinkle fresh chives like I did because chives give extra flavor and compliment salmon very well. Smoked salmon is also your personal preference. Most of the time I am using Alaskan Smoked Salmon. Bagel... you have a couple of choices, of course. The one that I am using is "Everything pre-sliced bagel", and I like the regular size for my family unless it's a party, then I am using mini bagels.
