Thanks to TK member (and fellow TK Blog contributor) Faith, I am now addicted to this Smoked Salmon Dip. It is perfect for a party appetizer, or to keep in the fridge all week long as a snack. The smokiness from the salmon infuses into the cream cheese and sour cream over time and it keeps getting better.
To make it you will need: cream cheese, sour cream, lemon juice, minced red onion, minced fresh dill, pepper, finely chopped smoked salmon and salt
In a medium bowl add the cream cheese, sour cream, and lemon juice.
Stir it vigorously until smooth.
Add the fresh dill, minced onion, and pepper and stir…
Then fold in the smoked salmon.
Season with salt as needed and let it sit so the flavors develop. You can adjust with more lemon juice, salt, pepper, and herbs as needed.
Serve with your favorite crackers. I used flaxseed crackers and they were delicious.
