Kids Recipes: Smoked Salmon and Cucumber Sandwich on Rye

Jenny Rosenstrach, coauthor of Time for Dinner: Strategies, Inspirations and Recipes for Family Meals Every Night of the Week (Chronicle Books, 2010) and creator of one of our favorite food logs, DinnerALoveStory.com, gives up recipes for whipping up the perfect--nutritious, easy and, most importantly, adorable--spring lunch.

Is it bad that crazy mom du jour Amy Chua's children are playing at Carnegie Hall, but my heart swelled with pride watching my daughter reach across the cafe table to try a bite of my husband's smoked salmon breakfast sandwich? And then proceeded to swoon? And then proceeded to ask for it in her lunch, which means occasionally we can send her to school with -- get this! -- something that is not a turkey sandwich. No reason this sandwich (a whole wheat English muffin topped with dill cream cheese, cucumbers, smoked salmon) can't join the ranks of Sandwiches for Dinner either.
