Combine the chopped pecans and parsley and sprinkle over the top of the smoked salmon mixture.

Serve with assorted crackers and endive spears. Makes 3 cups.

Make-ahead directions: This recipe can be prepared up to 3 days ahead and chilled. Take it out of the refrigerator an hour or so before serving; it is best served at room temperature.
