Easter Brunch or Appetizer-Simple Smoked Salmon Dip


A lot of my newly married couples and friends have been asking me for Easter brunch recipe ideas. I had to do some thinking because I was trying to come up with a really light, delicious easy recipe that would work for a Easter brunch, lunch or dinner. I also wanted a recipe that would work for Passover. I love smoked salmon so I thought this would be a perfect fit. It’s so quick, delicious and light. I served it as my appetizer for my dinner last night, and it was a major hit.
