Serve this dressy spread with toasted baguette rounds and a dry, fruity white wine like Riesling. It would also make a great appetizer atop slices of cucumber—just cut the cucumber rounds 1/2 inch thick and top with a dollop of the spread. For breakfast or brunch, serve with bagels or over scrambled eggs with slices of sweet, ripe melon like cantaloupe or honeydew on the side.

We live in an area that has lots of BYOA (bring your own appetizer) events. This spread is one of the two primary dishes that we take. I have made it at least 30 times. It is wonderful on toasted baguette slices, but I usually just serve it with croccantini crackers. Quality smoked salmon matters here. The fact that it can be made a day ahead is a big plus, but be sure to take it out of the refrigerator so that it softens before serving.
Delicious....have made many times. Use as written and you have a winner. Delicious flavour profile. Clean taste~ lovely texture. and SIMPLE
This spread has a wonderfully intense salmon flavor and is easy to make. This was quite the hit at my recent party-I had several people request the recipe. I served these with toasted baguette slices, and some people also put these on crackers that I had out on the table.
