You haven’t lived if you haven’t had smoked salmon.
OK, I’m slightly exaggerating here. I realize many of you reading this post probably have never tried smoked salmon, so I’ll dial it back and say: You haven’t experienced one of the best types of seafood out there if you’ve never tasted smoked salmon.
But before we talk about these AH-MAZ-ING, need-them-at-your-next-dinner-party Smoked Salmon on Toast Points, let’s wrap up Thanksgiving, shall we? I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and were able to take time to relax, unwind, and most importantly, share love and life with family and friends.
As some of you may have read in a previous post, this was my first year hosting Thanksgiving. All I can say is it was a dream come true! But today, it’s on to bigger and better things! Christmas and New Year’s are just around the corner and turkey is totally a thing of the past. It’s time to start thinking about Christmas dinners, decadent desserts and dinner party appetizers.
This Smoked Salmon on Toast Points recipe is the perfect crowd-pleasing dinner party appetizer. Because smoked salmon is so mild and tangy, I’d bet these might even please all of the non-seafood lovers out there. But you’ll have to let me know of that one. 😉
I used Canyon Bakehouse rye bread for this recipe because I love the way the rye compliments the herbed cream cheese, dill, cucumber and smoked salmon. It’s a dreamy combination that will have you shoving these toast points down your throat the minute the platter comes by. Bon appetit!
