Sardine Sandwich Spread

This Scandinavian-style spread is wonderful on dense, thin-sliced pumpernickel bread or whole grain crackers. Sardines are rich sources of omega-3 fatty acids.

1 tablespoon onion, finely chopped

1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice



  • Drain the fish and mash them with a fork in a bowl together with the mustard.
  • Add the onion and lemon juice.
  • Spread on bread and top with lettuce and tomato.
