I have recently discovered capers. These are the little green seed things they put on Chicken Piccata or Chicken Scallopini or lox on a bagel. I had to look them up to find out exactly what they are- buds of the Caper bush that have been pickled. So if I was in a restaurant, I would always get something if it had capers in it, and now I have one upped and bought a jar of capers myself. I toasted a bagel and then smeared on some cream cheese, added a layer of capers, and then a layer of finely chopped red onion, then a slice of smoked salmon. And of course, the salmon is probably my least favorite of the whole sandwich, but all together it is FANTASTIC!
