Smoked Salmon Spread

Smoked Salmon Spread

This spread takes about 10-15 minutes to make (and maybe less time to eat!). The dill and lemon keep it light, while the sweet onion and horseradish add a little kick.

  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 4 oz smoked salmon
  • 1 1/2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1 tbsp chopped dill
  • 1 tsp prepared horseradish
  • 2 to 3 tbsp finely chopped sweet red onion
  • Freshly ground pepper

Put everything except the onion in a food processor and blend. Transfer to a bowl and fold in the onion. Add pepper to taste.

This spread is great on bread but my favorite way to enjoy it is on crisp hashbrown patties with a little tomato and some capers.

Crispy hashbrowns are a perfect complement to this creamy spread.

This recipe comes from pestos, tapendaes & spreads, by Stacey Printz, Chronicle Books, 2009. I bought this book at Goodwill and it’s one of my favorites. Well worth the $9.00.
