Smoked Salmon Layer Dip

Smoked salmon is nestled between layers of creamy goat cheese and cream cheese, flavored with tangy lemon zest and capers and then served with crackers. Make it the day before to allow the flavors plenty of time to meld together. It is the perfect appetizer for the holiday season!
