Susan's Smokey Salmon Ball

Susan's Smokey Salmon Ball


"Salmon lovers and those who like non-traditional cheese balls will enjoy this nice appetizer. Finely chopped nuts or parsley may be substituted for cracker crumbs. Great for cocktail parties, showers, and family get-togethers. You can roll the finished ball in finely crushed pecans, slivered almonds, or finely minced parsley as you wish."
