Here it is! Smoked Salmon Spread

Well, my day trip got pushed back to tomorrow so I was able to make it to the grocery store after all! Yay!

I picked the Smoked Salmon Spread for the Barefoot Bloggers for a specific reason. You see, I used to think smoked salmon was the most disgusting thing in the world even though I had never tried it. I just assumed since in general I don’t like fish, I wouldn’t like smoked salmon. Well, one day someone ordered a Bagel and Lox and forced me to try a bite. I couldn’t believe what I had been missing out on all these years! I loved it and ever since then I always order Bagels and Lox whenever possible.

So, my goal in choosing this recipe was to get somebody out there who thinks they don’t like smoked salmon to give it a shot and maybe discover that they actually like it…like I did! I knew that this recipe wouldn’t please everyone but I was ok with that. Being a part of a blogging group like this is partially about being coerced into trying things that you would maybe never try otherwise. I hope that this recipe provided that push for someone out there, whether they ended up liking it or not!

And ok, ok….I guess I should admit that choosing this recipe was also partially out of pure selfishness because I just looooovvveeee smoked salmon (as mentioned above) but I had never used it in my home. Normally I just order it at restaurants and cafes so I wanted to try using it in a recipe.

I must say, this spread was soooooooooo good! I am definitely going to have to make this many times in the future. This was my favorite way to eat it:

See that? It’s like a mini bagels and lox! A couple of capers and a tiny piece of onion. Yum! Wouldn’t that be so cute to serve at a brunch too??

    Great choice for the BB and I too, like salmon. This spread is great as a dip, as a sandwich filling, as a veggie filling – I love that everyone has put their own spin on it…. and its savory too!

    Consider yourself validated. I had never had smoked salmon because I just knew that I wouldn’t like it. I’ve since had it several times. Can you reach around and give yourself a pt on the back?

    That would be nice to serve at a brunch already spread on the cracker like that-nice!

    thanks so much for choosing such a great recipe! and isn’t the point of getting to choose a recipe in a group like this to be selfish in what you choose? 🙂

    Thanks for chosing this recipe, even though I swapped out the salmon to make it vegetarian it was still a fun recipe to make, and I got to try horseradish for the first time 🙂 Great choice!
