Salmon Cheese Log

Cast your vote for Salmon Cheese Log

A Different but Delicious Appetizer

I know that I come across cheese balls or logs at almost every party I ever attend. So many of them include cheese and fruit or cheese and meat combinations. This one includes a tasty combination of cream cheese and salmon. Salmon is a super nutricious food and it is in my opinion one of the tastiest fish there is. This recipe incorporates cream cheese, salmon, horseradish, onion, and lemon juice with the taste of liquid smoke. The cheese log is rolled in parsley and pecans. It is delicious served on crackers, melba toast, or crustini bread.
