Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, fresh salmon was always on the menu, and it was always really, really good. But down here in Florida, it’s not quite the same.
Luckily, there is always smoked salmon, which is where this delicious spread comes in. Not only is it easy on the wallet, with just 5 easy ingredients, it couldn’t be any easier!
