This Smoked Salmon Quesadilla Is Completely Crazy and Crazy Good

Combine two classics (a lox bagel and a quesadilla) into one fabulous dish (a smoked salmon quesadilla), and the result is playful, inventive, and both like and unlike anything you've tried before. That's the beauty of El Nosh, a food truck serving up Jewish-Latin food like this clever take on a gooey, cheese-filled quesadilla. Watch the video to see how El Nosh chefs Roberto Treviño and Eric Greenspan make this enticing nibble, and then try it yourself.

  2. 1/2 a cucumber, thinly sliced

  8. 3 ounces whipped cream cheese

  10. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, mix together the onion, cucumber, capers, cilantro, and lemon juice. Season to taste with salt. Let sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
