1fresh baguette, sliced diagonally into 16 1/2-inch thick slices
28 oz packages of Simply Avocado Sea Salt Dip and Spread
1/2cucumber, thinly sliced
6ozsmoked salmon, thinly slicedto make it easy on yourself, look for already thinly sliced smoked salmon
black and white sesame seeds, for garnish
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Carefully slice the baguette diagonally into about 16 1/2-inch thick slices. Place them on a baking sheet and bake for 5-7 minutes, or until slightly toasted. Don't over toast them, or they will become hard.
In the meantime, thoroughly mix the soy sauce and sesame oil in a small bowl.
Once the baguette slices are toasted, remove from the oven and allow to cool for a minute or two. Once cooled, spread a heaping teaspoon's worth of the avocado dip over each baguette slice. Place a slice of cucumber on each baguette, then fold over a slice of smoked salmon. Generously brush the cucumber and salmon on each baguette with the sesame and soy mix.
Garnish with sesame seeds and serve.
You can make these a few hours in advance; keep them in the fridge with foil tented over top.
