Treat your party guests to something elegant and special but easy to make, like this Dijon mustard salmon tartare.
Indulge in the savory, ocean briny flavor of fresh and smoked salmon, paired with the tart, mildly pungent flavor of whole grain mustard. Caviar really takes it over the top for a festive meal, but the salmon tartare is just as delicious without it.
