Baked Salmon Salad is so versatile you can use it as an appetizer spread with crackers or you can use it as a spread for sandwiches.
What I love most about this Baked Salmon Salad Spread is that the flavor isn’t too fishy tasting, which for me can sometimes be a turnoff.
However, the mild flavor of this Salmon Salad Spread is balanced nicely with bright, fresh lemon zest, dried dill weed, and a touch of sweet pickle relish.
