Smoked Salmon with Cucumber Shot Glasses

We love smoked salmon and it is a staple of our appetizer offerings at any occasion. We like it with melon, on top of a cracker with capers and lemon juice, or on top of a Persian cucumber slice... But for an extra festive note, we reach for our shot glasses: alternately layer cucumber and smoked salmon cubes, and top it all off with a dill dressing and a sprig of fresh dill. To save time, you can even prepare all ingredients a day ahead!

Caponata Siciliana, from the appetizer buffet to the dinner table. Happy Thanksgiving!

I have my base recipe from a friend who was married to a Sicilian. While her recipe was already quite different than what I found online (it uses zucchini, no celery, no pine nuts) I ended up adding more than a few touches of my own, as well by substituting/adding ingredients and changing the preparation method.
