Salmon and Kalamata Olive Spread Open-Faced Sandwiches December 24, 2011

Jamie says: Merry Christmas Eve! Today we go to Christmas mass and host our annual Christmas Eve party. It’s one of my favorite days of the year…

My Mom makes this great Kalamata olive spread from The Frugal Gourmet Cooks with Wine cookbook. She usually makes it around Christmas time. I found a jar of it in the fridge. I tried a spoonful, and it was wonderful! I forgot how much I loved this stuff. I mixed it in with some canned salmon and made a meal out of it.

The olive spread adds so much flavor you don’t need anything else to flavor the salmon.

So good I ate the same thing for lunch 2 days in a row
