Think of this as a grown-up tea sandwich, with deeply flavorful rye or pumpernickel in place of soft white bread. Topped with a chive-butter and buttery smoked salmon and you’ve got a no-cook dinner comes together in just 15 minutes. If you want to keep the butter from melting, make sure the toasted bread is cool before spreading. A quick-marinated cucumber-tomato salad goes alongside for crunch. A shopping tip: You might see the English cucumber sold as a “seedless” cucumber. Either will work here.

How to Make It

Step 1

Whisk together oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Add cucumber, tomatoes, and onion and toss to coat.

Step 2

Stir together butter and chives. Spread bread with chive butter and top with lox and more chives. Serve with cucumber salad.
