Salmon Rillettes. This is such a great spread to make for parties, but it is also one of those things you can put on anything. Some things that come to mind are putting it in a grilled cheese, on a bagel, in cucumber cups, or just with some fresh veggies. As a tuna salad fan, I gotta say this is going to be my new go to when I’m in the mood for fish quick. I love this stuff so much. It’s so rich and creamy, and so easy to throw together. I also love that this is one of those recipes you can totally make ahead of time. Super easy entertaining. Hope you guys enjoy! ♥ Teri
