Smoked Salmon Spread

Smoked salmon spread is not only delicious, but it is also so easy to make! Using just a few ingredients, this appetizer comes together in no time!

Making this appetizer the night before will make it have even a more intense flavor. Serve this with extra capers, and slices of lemons. We love using pink lemons from Limoneira!
