Barefoot Contessa's Salmon Spread
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon minced fresh dill
1 teaspoon prepared horseradish, drained
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 pound (4 ounces) smoked salmon, minced.
I stirred and stirred until my arm hurt.
This is one of those recipes that you need to mix up at least a few hours ahead so that the flavors can mingle. I made mine this evening to serve tomorrow evening. You can serve on crackers or toasted slices of french bread. I'm serving on crackers.
I would like to introduce you to my new go-to recipe. You know the one that you can quickly and easily mix up and wow your guests?
I'm having a meeting at my house tomorrow night. The Meeting of the Intelligent Minds. It is a small meeting- just myself and two other gal friends. We started trying to get together about every four weeks or so and then we gave our meeting a name. Because you know what we do? We get together and solve the problems of the world! Just the three of us. We are small, but mighty. Oh, the results that we produce! And oh, the safety that abides with the three of us! No subject is taboo and what is spoken at The Meeting of the Intelligent Minds stays with The Meeting of the Intelligent Minds.
Sometimes we go to a restaurant to meet after work. (All three of us work full time.) Twice now, one of the gals has had us over on a Saturday evening and had a full-blown get out the good dishes and the crystal sit down at the table meal. She had pork roast and potatoes and green beans and she served us this dip as part of her appetizer spread. I about went plum crazy for it. I hope my version is as good as hers was. This is the second time that I am hosting. It is just so nice to cozy up to the fire. I love our little meetings.
