Whether it is served for breakfast, brunch or an afternoon snack this lox is incredible when paired with cream cheese and a bagel and garnished with capers, red onions and fresh dill.
I had one of the best breakfasts of my life when I went to Chicago a while back. And then when shopping at Fresh Market recently I was reminded of it when I saw lox in the seafood department.
Since I love food holidays I was excited to see that there is a National Bagel and Lox day but I definitely did not want to wait until February 9th to share this! So I am about 4 months early but remember it is salmon week on the blog!
And you gotta check this out – one of my twitter friends even makes him own Homemade Lox – definitely putting that on my to do list!
Wish I could talk longer but I have lots going on lately so maybe next week I can catch yall up on some stuff!
