Tzatziki Avocado Salmon Rolls are the perfect party appetizer. They’re totally delicious, easy to make, super pretty, and healthy. Bonus: they can be made ahead of time!



  • 2 tablespoons Summer Fresh Extra Thick Tzatziki
  • 2 tablespoons minced chives, divided  (plus extra whole chives for garnish)
  • Juice from 1/4 lime
  • 1/2 ripe avocado, peeled and sliced
  • 5 oz (150 g) wild smoked salmon (lox)
  • 1 English cucumber (cut into 8 thin strips (with the seeds removed) and 12 rounds)
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds (I like a mix of white and black)


  1. In a small bowl, mix together the Summer Fresh Extra Thick Tzatziki, 1 teaspoon of the minced chives, and the lime juice.
  2. Lay a piece of plastic wrap (about 16 inches long) on your table. Place the smoked salmon on top of the plastic, overlapping the pieces to make a 12″ x 7″ rectangle. Pat them down gently so they stick together.
  3. Spread the tzatziki over the salmon. Lay the avocado slices down the center of the salmon, top with the cucumber strips, and sprinkle the remaining chives over the top.
  4. Using the plastic to help you, roll the salmon tightly then sprinkle the sesame seeds over the top.
  5. OPTIONAL STEP: refrigerate the roll for 15 minutes to make slicing it easier.
  6. Slice the salmon roll into 12 pieces, place them on cucumber slices, and top with 2 small chives on each.


These salmon rolls are nice served on crunchy rice crackers, too!

Make these up to 4 hours before a party and slice them just before serving.
