Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp light cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp soured cream
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh dill
  • 16 (about 300g) smoked salmon strips, about 12cm x 3.5cm each
  • Bunch of fresh chives, snipped into 5cm lengths
  • 85g watercress, stems discarded, plus extra leaves to garnish

Method

  1. Line a large Tupperware box with cling film. In a bowl, mix together the cream cheese, soured cream and lemon juice. Season to taste, then stir in the chopped fresh dill.
  2. Lay half the salmon strips on a clean work surface. Divide half the cheese mixture along the length of each, leaving a 2.5cm border at 1 short end. Lay half the chives across each strip, then top with half the watercress. Roll up tightly from a cheese end, into a neat roll, so the chives and some watercress are sticking out. Repeat to make 16.
  3. Transfer the salmon rolls to the Tupperware box, seam-side down, layering with cling film as you go. Chill until ready to take to the picnic. Garnish with extra watercress and lemon wedges, if you like.
