Smoked Salmon Dip

Now that summer is behind us (unfortunately), fall has officially begun and the holidays are just around the corner, I saw this appetizer recipe on Gwyneth's Goop and thought it was just the perfect thing to bring to a fall dinner party or upcoming holiday party.  And, who can resist a new delicious treat for cocktail hour!!!  Enjoy!!
