Flavorful, and chock-full of healthy Omega-3’s, sardines are widely available and pack well. This sardine spread is one of the easiest appetizers you can make, and it will be always well received. Perfect for impromptu gatherings as it can be whipped up in a flash, place the spread in a bowl with some crackers on the side, and leave your guests to smear or dip as they wish. Imagine it with raw veggie sticks… Leftover spread can also be tucked inside an omelet for breakfast; in a sandwich, it makes the perfect on-the-go snack/meal replacement.
