Smoked Salmon Spread

Hubs loves this stuff, and I mean loooooves this stuff. And I can't blame him - it's the best salmon spread I've ever had (and I have tried my fair share in my lifetime). So easy to make, too!

We tend to add extra horseradish (gotta love that bite). Just few things to note: First, go easy on the salt. I season it up at the end, because depending on the type of salmon used, it may not need any salt at all. Second, be sure to make this well ahead of time. This is definitely a spread that takes a few hours for the flavors to really come together.

Smoked Salmon Spread

8 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 c. sour cream
1 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 Tbsp. minced fresh dill
1 tsp. prepared horseradish, drained
1/4 tsp. kosher salt (Easy on the salt!)
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/4 lb.(4 oz.) smoked salmon, diced

Cream the cheese in an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment until just smooth.

Add the sour cream, lemon juice, dill, and horseradish, and mix. Add the smoked salmon and mix well, then season with salt and pepper. Chill and serve with crudites or crackers.

God, this makes me wish the hubs liked smoked salmon. I guess I'll have to make this when I have the girlfriends over for brunch!

I am hosting a wine and cheese party this weekend. I am going to try this, sans sour cream, spread onto tortillas and make mini-pinwheels to serve as a little something "extra"

salmo hmmm! I don't be a great fan of this fish, but in all case I can use this for my Viagra Online special recipe, this can give it a different flavor and effect.

I know desserts are not any healthy, however they are absolutely delicious, no matter which one, but when you see chocolate or whipped cream you know is gonna be delightful.
