I always buy the little tubs of the soft cream cheese with smoked salmon. While I do love it, I wanted to make my own version. Wow, what a difference. I dont think I could ever buy the little tubs anymore.
I love this stuff and it was quick to put together. It’s good with crackers, pita chips, veggie sticks, crostini. You could even toss it with some hot pasta. I bet that would be great and I think I will have to try that soon.
A little bit of smoked salmon goes a long way, so you don’t have to use too much.
I hope you give it a try.
Smoked Salmon Dip
1 8oz block softened cream cheese
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tsp minced shallot (chives or green onion work too)
approx 4 oz smoked salmon (more or less depending on your taste)
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 Tblsp heavy whipping cream (if you want more of a lighter, fluffier mousse type of dip)
Just throw everything in a food processor and give it a whiz until its all soft and creamy.
So simple and so delicious
