I got this recipe off of one of my favourite blogs and tweaked it a bit, adding fresh and dried herbs and a few different ingredients. This is a great recipe for anyone who loves sardines, and for those who think they don't! Serve on crackers or toast.

Smoked salmon is blended into a creamy spread for crackers or bread. Great for party nibbles or canapés.
