Expert Tips

What is salmon lox? It’s brine-cured, cold-smoked salmon that is usually slightly saltier than other smoked salmon. Some lox has added sugar, which makes it less salty.

In a hurry? Skip the lox and cream cheese, and use any container of fat-free or reduced-fat flavored cream cheese found in the dairy case at the supermarket.
