Very different. I thought it was rather strong but was nice on toast- used sparingly! Next time I will use less sardine and more of everything else. Great fast recipe!
I love sardines - and I've eaten those ones that make people open windows, too. I don't know if my sardines were particulary mild or is it the nature of this dish, but it seemed that the yoghurt and the cottage cheese actually made this spread quite mild. Still, very nice on a rye toast :)
