Smoked Salmon Spread

So many of us are enjoying wonderful white wines at this time of the year! Our spring shipments to both our La Familia and GlenLyon wine clubs included Chardonnay, which is a beautiful pairing with this Smoked Salmon Spread recipe. One of our Wine Room managers, Nancy Fine, has altered this recipe from San Francisco A La Carte. It is easy and fabulous! In Nancy’s words’, “This hors d’oeuvre is a hit every time!”

  • 3-4 Shallots, finely chopped
  • 2 T capers
  • 2 Tsp chopped fresh dill
  • 1/2 Cup sour cream
