Delicious Chopped Salmon Bagel Recipe

Oh my goodness, this turned out even better than I expected! This recipe makes it so you get all of your favorite salmon bagel toppings in every single bite! I've been hearing so much about the viral chopped Italian sub sandwich so I thought why not try it with the elements from one of my favorites: lox & bagels!

All the yummy ingredients are chopped together and spread onto a toasted everything bagel. My daughter looked at me funny asking me why I'm making such a messy recipe, I told her that's just what you see, once you taste it, you'll understand! You get the delicious flavor of each ingredient in every bite.

My son is always asking for tuna salad sandwiches. when I think of it, this is really similar to that! Because it takes minimal prep, you can make these on the spot or in a big batch so that you can take your breakfast on the go.

My husband can't get enough of this recipe! He does however question why I choose to chop up the half bagel. You don't have to do this, you can certainly just chop up the other ingredients and it will work just fine, but I like using the bottom half of the bagel, it adds something extra. The lox can be swapped for another favorite smoked fish like whitefish for a whitefish salad bagel sandwich. You can add capers for the tanginess, or slices of ripe avocado for a fresh and creamy element.

Give my recipe a try, you'll fall in love!


  • 1 everything bagel, halved

  • 1/2 cup of cream cheese

  • 2 ounces of smoked salmon

  • 1 sliced Persian cucumber

  • 1/2 of a shallot, sliced

  • 1 small tomato

  • 1 teaspoon of chopped sweet pepper

  • Fresh dill to taste

  • Lemon zest to taste


  1. Toast the bagel and spread cream cheese over one side, place it onto a cutting board and top with the salmon, cucumber, shallot, tomato, dill, and lemon zest.

  2. Use a sharp knife to chop the mixture into small pieces until it's thoroughly mixed together.

  3. Spread the mixture on the top half of the bagel and enjoy! You can also use two sides of a bagel, and close it up to create a sandwich. Bon appétit!
