Kicking off holiday season with creamy spread

November 29, 2012
The holiday season is here and it’s a long one this year. Yea!

I’m kicking off the season with a creamy spread made with smoked salmon and cream cheese. Smeared on a cracker or stuffed into a celery stalk, this yummy cream cheese is a perfect party starter. P.S. It’s super easy to prepare.

Smoked Salmon Cream Cheese

1 - 8 oz. block cream cheese, softened to room temperature

4 oz. smoked salmon

2 teaspoons lemon juice

1 teaspoon prepared horseradish

1/4 teaspoon white pepper

1 tablespoon chopped scallions

1 tablespoon capers, drained

Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until smooth. Scrape bowl sides with a spatula in between pulses. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.

Smoked salmon cream cheese carries just enough of a punch from the horseradish and

capers. A flavorful spread for sure.

Serve in celery boats or on crispy crackers.
