File this one under easy Easter brunch ideas, folks! One of my favorite ways to celebrate at home with guests is by making a beautiful board everyone can gather around (and you know I love my paleo appetizers). Seasonal vegetables are a must and so is a killer dip to really showcase the season’s finest! For this Spring brunch crudité board, I’ve made a delicious dairy-free smoked salmon dip that’s so easy to whip up and a real crowd pleaser. The secret ingredient is definitely the Maille Dijon Originale Mustard to give it a delicious tang and an extra something special. Oh! And stay tuned for a Maille giveaway at the end of the post.

If you’ve ever tried smoked salmon, you know it’s got so much flavor on its own and it happens to be one of my favorite breakfasts. Not only is it convenient since it doesn’t require cooking, but it also really jazzes anything up you choose to pair it with. SO FANCY for like, 0 effort – that’s what I’m about. This recipe normally calls for dairy, so to make a smoked salmon dip without cream cheese takes a little creativity, but it’s not hard at all. Some coconut cream and lemon do the job nicely. The addition of the Maille Dijon Originale Mustard also gives it more of the oomph you might expect and all the flavors come together beautifully.

Make this in just a few minutes and win at spring brunches this year! Enjoy!
