Smoked Salmon and Potato Spread

Smoked Salmon and Potato Spread
This appetizer is a twist on the classic Potato Skordalia. The rich flavours of sockeye salmon and dill compliment the creamy McCain Purely Potatoes® base. Serve it on a crisp flatbread for the perfect holiday appetizer.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Half of a 750 g bag McCain Purely Potatoes® Frozen Potato Chunks (about 3 cups/750 mL)
