Smoked Salmon Dip Starts With Alaskan Salmon
This dip, while simple to make, should be made with quality ingredient for the best results. Smoked salmon is available at all price points and is an impressive dish to have on the appetizer menu. Other popular dips we love to eat are my million dollar dip and baked pepper jack spinach dip. which is always well received. The addition of bacon and heat to a classic spinach dip takes it to a whole other level. Salmon dip is also tasty served with crostini or slathered on mini bagels for a snazzy brunch.
Appetizers Set The Tone
When entertaining, I’m keenly aware of how important appetizers are to the event as a whole. It’s important to have at least one signature starter to serve as people arrive. It immediately sets the tone for the gathering and puts people at ease. When people gather around a delicious snack it often starts conversation and gives them a moment to relax and settle in prior to the meal. Browse more appetizer ideas here in the MSSK recipe index.
