“Fika is a traditional daily Swedish coffee break where people gather to enjoy their coffee with a bite to eat. Open-faced sandwiches are a part of daily life all across Scandinavia, particularly in Norway. The prep time does not include 1 hour cooling time. Enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, scallion, parsley, chives, dill, garlic, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Reserve a small amount of fresh dill for garnish. Mix until everything is evenly distributed. Cover and chill the mixture for at least 1 hour before serving.
  2. Spread 1 to 2 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture on a crispbread cracker or rye bread (best if lightly toasted). Repeat until all of the cream cheese mixture has been used.
  3. Top with cucumber slices, and sprinkle with reserved fresh dill. Eat immediately!
  4. Variation: Instead of baby cucumbers, top the herbed cream cheese mixture with smoked salmon and red onions.
