I will make this with smoked salmon.



This is an absolutely delicious cheese ball. Easy to make and a huge hit with my family.



Can you use canned salmon instead of fresh?



@kgrider You may need to adjust the ratio of cream cheese and salmon to taste, but canned salmon should certainly work in this recipe.
