“I love smoked salmon and cream cheese. I have tried alot of them, quite a few from here on Zaar. So I decided to try my own....I took my favorite ingredients and threw them all together to create this truly tasty sandwich. I always add a little extra smoked salmon, cause I love it...I hope that you will enjoy this version. Add these ingredients to suit your personal tastes. The longer the cream cheese mixture sits in the fridge, the better it will taste. This is wonderful served on a large toasted sesame bagel for lunch or it makes a great appetizer when served on plain fresh mini bagels.”
