Optional, but very good: arugula, fresh herbs (we use dill)
Toast bagels in toaster, then top with cheese while still warm.
Top with salmon, radishes, cucumbers, capers, arugula and fresh dill (if using).
Wine pairing: a light, crisp white like a sauvignon blanc or dry rosé would go well with the strong flavors of this dish
