For the base
  1. 8 slices Smoked Salmon
  2. 4 slices of Sourdough Bread
  3. 2 tablespoons butter, softened (optional)
  4. 2 teaspoons white vinegar
  5. 4 large eggs
  6. Chopped Chives
For the mock hollandaise
  1. 1/2 cup light mayonnaise
  2. 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  3. 4 tablespoons TASTE OF THE OKANAGAN LEMON DILL VINAIGRETTE
  4. 1 tablespoons unsalted butter
  5. Kosher salt and cayenne pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Fill a medium to large saucepan with 1-1/2 to 2 inches of water and 2 teaspoons white vinegar. Bring water to a boil and then reduce heat to medium-low; water should maintain a few small occasional bubbles.
  2. While water is boiling make the mock hollandaise. Whisk the mayonnaise, Dijon, and TASTE OF THE OKANAGAN LEMON DILL VINAIGRETTE. Melt the butter and stir in quickly. Season with a pinch of kosher salt and a generous amount of cayenne pepper.
  3. To poach the eggs, crack each egg into a small dish, partially submerge the dish in the pan, and tip the egg into water. Cook until the whites are set and opaque, but yolks are still runny, about 2-3 minutes. Remove each egg with a slotted spoon to a paper towel-lined plate.
  4. To assmble, top each piece of toast with 2 slices of smoked salmon and a poached egg. Drizzle with mock hollandaise sauce. Sprinkle with chives, salt, pepper, and paprika. Serve immediately.
