Lemon Dilly Sardine Rillettes
Looking for an easy appy that’s truly healthy? Reach for a can of sardines, a source of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids and bone-boosting calcium. Sustainably caught, they also have the lowest levels of mercury compared to other fish. Once doused with dill, cream cheese and lemon, any funky fishiness fades into a yummy creamy spread. Even kids who like tuna might give this a try!
