Serve with Spicy Bloody Marys.

    Have made twice--the 1 cup of mayo turned the filling into a less-flavorful taste. Someone commented here to only use enough mayonnaise to bind the ingredients together--which is exactly my recommendation. The flavors pop! And don't use a food processor on the capers--rough chop them. SO great--they disappear as soon as you put them out.

    Everyone loved these as an Easter appetizer-even the self-professed smoked salmon haters. Could have easily doubled the recipe. The balsamic capers I used added an extra layer of flavor.
