Smoked salmon is like bacon to me–it makes everything better. I used to eat it shamelessly on high carb, gluten-laden bagels. Not any more! I’ve realized I like smoked salmon even better with eggs!
Egg salad makes the perfect back drop for smoked salmon. The capers, dill and green onions add even more flavor and elegance. The result is a creamy, smoky concoction sure to convert even the most difficult bagel and salmon lovers.
