There is even something green in there! What season is it again? It's like it isn't even fall! It's like it isn't even Halloween!
But villagers, hear me! Before you take up your pitchforks and torches and chase me back into my mountain stronghold.
The green is avocado. It is smooth and creamy. It will not sideline you with anything bitter or unsettlingly crisp. It will smoosh up against your smoked salmon and blend with your cream cheese in delicate, pale green swirls.
The salmon is smokey and heavily peppered. Yes, please.
You know salmon is like the Oregon state fish, right? I mean, do we have a state fish? I'm pretty sure it is the salmon.
You could eat this with chop sticks, if you wanted to. It's kind of a bastardized, American-ized sushi.
And I say that with all affection.
If you eat this between handfuls of candy, go ahead and congratulate yourself on how healthy you've been the week of Halloween.
