Quick Dinner: Nordic Smorbrod

Summertime is always busy in a more relaxed and fun way than the other 9 months of the year. With a mix of yoga, tennis lessons, and spinning going on during the week I get home later and don't really feel like turning on the stove to cook dinner. The smorbrod, a Scandinavian open-faced sandwich, is perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner. All you need is some knäckebröd (Swedish crisp bread), cheese, fresh veggies, or some deli meat. I often go with the vine-ripened tomato, Wisconsin extra-sharp white chedder, and thin slices of salami or proscuitto. You can add whatever you have in your fridge. If you cannot find knackebrod then use ak-mak or wasa hard crackers that you can find at Trader Joe's or Whole Foods.
