Salmon Rosettes with Cream Cheese and Capers~

Here is kind of a non-recipe, but still a stunning arrangement for any breakfast or brunch. Adding some dill would be another nice touch, but I’ve kept it simple.
Salmon Rosettes with Cream Cheese and Capers…a Skinny Chick original
3 small packages smoked salmon (I used Norwegian)
Whipped cream cheese
2-3 heads endive
Red onion, diced
Cut strips of salmon and roll into rosettes.  Place in center of round serving platter.  Surround salmon with leaves of endive…like petals of a sunflower.  Using a one teaspoon cookie disher or measuring spoon, scoop out rounds of cream cheese and place on endive leaves.  Sprinkle arrangement with diced onion and capers.  Serve with bagels or sliced baguettes.
