One of the best things about living in Portland (and there are many!) is the easy access to so many amazing wineries! I recently sampled a Pinot Noir Rose’ from Mt. Hood Winery and WOW!

I typically have been slow to jump on the bandwagon for rose’, but lately I have had a few that are really winning me over. And, this one sprints to the top of my list! It screamed to be sipped with my famous smoked salmon spread (now even better with endless northwest salmon in this area).

Smoked Salmon Spread Recipe


  • 8 oz Smoked Salmon (I used a nice Alaskan option)
  • 4oz Whipped Cream cheese (use the whipped, blends so much easier)
  • 2 Tbsp Chopped scallion
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 3 Tbsp Chopped fresh dill
  • Dash (or two) of hot sauce (I use Sriracha)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


Using a fork mash the salmon into the cream cheese and remaining ingredients. That's it!


I find it tastes best the next day. Just bring to room temperature and serve with your favorite cracker or bread. I used little pita puff rounds with this tasting and it was perfect.
